20 For 20: Honoring 20 years of community
As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we’ve been reflecting on the strength, dedication, and innovative spirit shown by everyone in our community. We have pivoted, made adjustments, and thought more outside the box than ever before. We’ve continued to meet the ongoing demands of creating high-quality, fair trade products within the confines of significant health, economic, and environmental challenges.
For 20 years we have been working to create a more sustainable and human-forward approach to production and consumption. What sustainable and human-forward looks like can change from year to year because, well, humans change, and our environment and circumstances change. The ongoing challenges of supply chain disruptions, significant cost increases for raw materials, and economic inflation have resulted in decreased sales which greatly impacts the livelihood of the Mamas and their families.
This year we are celebrating 20 years of transformative work and we’re determined to celebrate 20 more. By donating $20 or more towards our 20 for 20 Campaign, you are helping to lay the foundation for 20 more years of life-changing work.
A little goes a long way
Donations from this campaign will help us continue our mission of working together to create prosperity for African women and their families. We hope to create more employment opportunities and continue to hone our skills. We aim to become a stronger organization and partner with more women by bringing the Global Mamas approach to new communities. We hope you will partner with us in reaching new heights over the next 20 years!
To provide some perspective on how funds work towards providing these significant resources:
- $20 – Will help fund end-of-year celebrations in each of our locations
- $40 – Will help fund First Class First Time quality bonuses for batiking and sewing
- $120 – Will help purchase needed raw materials before major price hikes experienced in Ghana in the new year
- $220 – Will help fund the necessary repairs to our biogas digester at the FTZ so we can utilize clean gas for papermaking and batiking
- $520 – Will support critical inflationary increases for the Mamas
- $1200 – Will create one permanent job for a new Global Mama
With your help, we will continue to create a space where women will strengthen themselves, their families, and their communities. We will continue to connect women in rural areas to international marketplaces to facilitate more equitable distribution of resources that promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth. This in turn will ignite social change, breaking the cycle of poverty and gender inequality. As the women become powerful role models, their children and their communities will flourish.
