We began back in 2006 as Global Mothers. We realized that while many of our artisans were mothers, not all were. While staying true to our original vision and business model, we realized an opportunity to expand our reach to empower all women through women.
We now have an expanded focus as Global Women, connecting with talented women to create beautiful, hand-crafted jewellery for sale in curated marketplaces in North America.
We now have an opportunity where you can become a part of Global Women.
FOUNDING GLOBAL WOMEN
Peter Mogan is a partner in Access Law, with a heart for helping the poor. His passion for helping women in need began more than 20 years ago when he served on the Board of Opportunity International—then a small microfinance organization.
Peter has spent considerable time in Africa, Latin America and South East Asia, working with and leading organizations such as “Food for the Hungry” to establish micro-financing opportunities and microenterprises. As a result of using these tools in poor communities, Peter saw their value in providing a new way of life for women, children and families. During this time, Peter saw that NGOs were beginning to use small artisan-led businesses as a way of generating sustainable income for artisans. Through the generation of new income for women, otherwise impoverished lives could be transformed into healthy, productive individuals, families and communities.
In 2010, Peter created the Transformational Trade Network (TTN) to improve the economies of materially disadvantaged communities in the Global South by providing a market for their hand-made high quality products.
