I love Global Mamas!

Global Mamas transforms the lives of women in Ghana, Africa by creating sustainable income opportunities which lead to financial independence. Global Mamas reduces the economic inequality of women by significantly increasing wages and generating new jobs through the production and export of fair trade products. This in turn improves the standard of living for women, their families, and the larger community. We believe that helping women gain financial independence is the most effective way to create prosperous communities.

I just bought these products for Global Mamas and absolutely love them! I love supporting businesses like this and besides that, their products are amazing. The colors are fabulous and everything is very well made. On each tag there is the name of the woman who made it. Once you have the name you can go online at tradeforchange.com and see photos and a bio about the woman, sometimes even a video! It makes it really personal.
