Batiking & Sewing Center (Ashaiman)

Ashaiman (pronounced A-shah-ma) is our newest Global Mamas location. Originally located in the town of Prampram, this textile location relocated to Ashaiman in August 2012. The Ashaiman Mamas produce batik textiles and sew them into beautiful accessories and apparel. All of our Mamas work together in the Ashaiman production center and are directly employed by Global Mamas, which provides them with health care and retirement benefits.

“Presently I see myself as being prosperous because I own a tailoring shop and live independently with no one taking care of my needs. In the future, I want to own a much bigger tailoring workshop, train apprentices, and own a house.”

 

Meet Florence: A seamstress, Florence joined Global Mamas at the recommendation of three of her friends who worked at the organization. As she’s learned new skills, she’s perfected the techniques needed to make her favorite product, the Eli dress, and hopes to keep learning more so that she can continue expanding her existing workshop. While she’s working at Global Mamas, she has two employees back at her workshop. Florence plans to use some of her earnings from Global Mamas to purchase an electric sewing machine for her shop. When not at work, she enjoys relaxing on nearby Legacy Beach with friends.

 

I feel happy when I see people wearing our products. It makes me feel confident and comforted.

“Prosperity means being able to purchase the things my family needs to live.

 

Meet Roseline: Roseline has been a seamstress since she finished fashion school. She lives near the Global Mamas Ashaiman office and would often see an employee, Maria, walking to work. She stopped Maria one day to find out where she worked and heard about Global Mamas. Later that week, Roseline brought in samples of her work and was hired. Roseline enjoys working with her fellow seamstresses and batikers and notes that “our teamwork is excellent.” She and her husband are saving money to build a house to live in with their three children. Roseline has big dreams for her children, saying “I want my kids to go very far in their education. My daughter wants to be a doctor. She's the best student in her class.”

 

To the women around the world wearing her products, Roseline says, “We are trying hard to do good; we hope you appreciate our work!
