Meet the Mamas
Amelia Okusia Patrick, Soap Makers (Adenta, Ghana)
Four years ago, a friend introduced Amelia to Eugenia, owner of Naasakle, a Global Mamas shea butter business parter. Soon after, Amelia joined Naasakle and has been working here ever since making our Dandy Lion Black Soap. Originally from Kumasi, Ghana’s second-largest city, Amelia sold fish there to an unreceptive market and eventually came to Accra to find work. She grew up among two brothers and four sisters, and lived with her father's new wife after her mother passed away. Now in Accra, Amelia has four children from ages seven to 18, and is happy to send them all to school.
