Meet the Mamas
Grace Osabutey, Batiker (Prampram, Ghana)
“I feel that I’ve worked for prosperity and that I have achieved it.”
Meet Grace: After completing junior high school, Grace enrolled in a vocational school to learn how to batik. Following graduation, she heard about the opportunity to join Global Mamas from a friend. Grace enjoys her work at Global Mamas; she says she prefers the dyes because they don’t fade over time and she loves seeing her fabrics transformed into products. Grace designed her own pattern for a contest to create a uniform for seamstresses and batikers in Ashaiman. Grace dreams of one day opening her own large batik shop. When she’s not batiking at Global Mamas, Grace enjoys spending time with her daughter Clementina and supporting her dream of becoming a doctor.
“I like working in teams and trying new techniques together.”
