About Tumi Ghana

Tumi Ghana is a social enterprise that creates sustainable income opportunities for women in Kumasi.

In our Women Empowerment Center, young women are trained to become seamstresses and designers. The women are also coached on entrepreneurial skills, such as administration and marketing. In addition, they receive sex education and access to free birth control. This results in skilled and independent women who can take care of themselves and their children.

Self supporting

Our dream is to become 100% self-supporting

Our goal is not only to achieve financial independence for the women that join our project, but also for the project itself. That is why we run Tumi Hostel and we sell our products on Maame Tumi, two side projects to generate income to finance the Women Empowerment Centre.
Tumi Hostel is located on the same premises as our Women Empowerment Center, and is rated with a 9.4 on booking.com.
Maame Tumi is our online store where you can buy all our beautiful handmade items – we ship worldwide!
