Promotions and New Hires

Dear Global Mamas Supporters,

We are so pleased to announce that since our last update we’ve had the opportunity to promote two incredible women from within Global Mamas and create another new job. There’s no better way to say thank you than to introduce you to these three women who have directly benefited from your generosity. 

Dorcas started with Global Mamas as a Quality Control Officer in 2007 and was quickly groomed for the position of Quality Control Coordinator due to her background in teaching and sewing. Dorcas has an impeccable eye for quality and demonstrates the traits of a true leader.

When the Prampram workshop opened, Global Mamas had Dorcas in mind for the important role of Quality Control Manager. She made the relocation to Prampram and is thriving in her new position.  She now oversees the entire quality control team in Prampram and is responsible for introducing new products to the Prampram seamstresses.

October 6, 2012 marks Dorcas’s six-year anniversary with Global Mamas and in December this year, she will receive a Diploma in Education from the University of Cape Coast. These accomplishments, along with her passion for sewing and strength to follow her dreams, exemplify what an outstanding woman Dorcas is.

Global Mamas describes Joyce as small and mighty! This quiet but strong woman has been a part of the Global Mamas team for four years. Early in 2012 when Dorcas moved to Prampram, Joyce was promoted from a Quality Control Officer to the Cape Coast Quality Control Manager.

With a background in sewing, Joyce is determined to establish herself in the fashion industry and continue building her skills.  She has recently begun pattern-making lessons and loves learning the technical aspects of sewing.

Antoinette joined Global Mamas as a Cape Coast Quality Control Officer in early 2012 when Joyce was promoted to the Quality Control Manager. Along with learning the in’s and out’s of the organization, she has been taking pattern making lessons and will start computer training in the summer.

Antoinette lives with her Grandmother and six family members in Elmina. She dreams of having her own shop one day, but is currently saving up to go to school in fashion and design. 

These women come from different walks of life, are different ages and have different dreams, but they do have a common goal of improving the lives of themselves, their families and their communities. Thanks to your donation they are well on the way to achieving their personal and shared goals!

Thank you from the entire Global Mamas team!
