Create Jobs for Women in Ghana
Roll over image to zoom in
Your kindness in supporting this program helps Ghanaian women. Thank you!
Thirty-five years ago, textile production boasted 25,000 employees in Ghana. Today, cheap imports, second-hand clothing, and counterfeit fabrics have devastated the once-booming textile industry, reducing the workforce to just 4,000. Ghanaian women trained as seamstresses or batikers have been left with no hope of finding work, and unable to provide for their families.
Global Mamas and Women in Progress Inc. are providing Ghanaian women with sustainable, fairly compensated jobs and giving them access to the global marketplace. This project will liberate women from the cycle of poverty by providing them with valuable training and supplies, and will lay the groundwork for hundreds of new jobs.
Your caring and compassion can make a difference. Contribute at the $23 or $45 level to help this program soar!
Global Mamas reduces the economic inequality of women in Africa by significantly increasing wages and generating new jobs through the production and export of fair trade products. This improves the standard of living for women, their families, and the larger community. Global Mamas believes that helping women gain financial independence is the most effective way to create prosperous communities.
