Global Mamas in Wall Street Journal

We have a new site www.g-lish.org where you can read all articles from This is Ghana in a much more organised fashion. Read Global Mamas in Wall Street Journal there.


In a defense of capitalism and caterpillar factories, the President made mention of his visit to Ghana earlier this year when he met two of our Global Mamas - Aggie and Esther - saw their work in action, and received a special briefing about Global Mamas work with reference to the impact of AGOA: the African Growth and Opportunity Act.
"I've walked the grounds of a trade fair in Ghana, where I met women who support their families by exporting handmade dresses and jewelry...."
AGOA allows us to export certain categories of products that are made in Ghana, such as our wearable fashion items, duty free into the USA. This provides a competitive pricing advantage in the US market, thereby supporting our growth in the USA market.

Ghana fashion!

We have a new site www.g-lish.org where you can read all articles from This is Ghana in a much more organised fashion. Read Ghana fashion! there.


Second-hand clothing proliferates on the streets of Ghana. Don't be surprised if you find the pineapple lady sporting a t-shirt advertising your local -- as in back "home" -- plumber's services, or the fish seller in your favourite sporting team's jersey from thirteen years ago, or the taxi driver in a "Choose Life" throwback which you may wish to trade, if you're brave enough to get yours off in the middle of a heaving market.

But the sandal seller who passed the egg lady where I was gobbling my egg sandwich by the open sewer one morning exceeded all previous t-shirt spottings.

"Well behaved women rarely make history" -- a motto to live by, for sure -- is my favourite priceless hand-me-down.
