Meet the Mamas
Christina Pufuaba, Batiker (Cape Coast, Ghana)
“To me, prosperity is when you are hardworking. If you are not hardworking, you cannot prosper. You will be the same as you were.”
Meet Christina: Christina identifies deeply with her work; when asked to describe herself in one word, Christina simply answered “batiker.” After schooling, she was employed to batik under another Global Mama. Through skill and hard work, she was able to join Global Mamas herself in 2011. Her favorite pattern to produce is pineapple, saying “If you give me thousands of yards that need to be pineapples, I will do it in one week for you. I love that design!” Christina’s proudest accomplishment is saving enough money to purchase a tin roof for her batiking workshop, allowing her to stamp patterns in the rain. In her free time, Christina loves to visit the elderly of her church and sing to them.
“I dream for my children, I’ll help them during their education to help them go higher. I work for my children.”
