When Renae Adam and Kristin Johnson worked in Ghana as part of the US Peace Corps, they collaborated on many projects designed to empower women. After finishing their tenure there and returning to the United States, they continued to help markets abroad for several women batikers in Ghana.
Eventually the pair formed a nonprofit organization dedicated to the economic empowerment of women in Africa. Women in Progress, also doing business as Global Mamas, began in 2002. The US operation, led by Johnson, focuses on finding markets for the products made by women in Ghana and recruiting local volunteers and students to donate their expertise to female micro entrepreneurs.
Adam works as a local NGO to extend exporting services to many woman-led businesses in Ghana.
As a charitable partner of GreaterGood.org, their efforts are supported through the Gifts That Give More [tm] program which allows visitors to the GreaterGood Network of websites to make micro-donations to benefit this work.
