Ohema Ohene is an African inspired fashion brand with a British twist, founded in London UK, Ohema Ohene has always had its heart in Ghana. At a very early age founder Abenaa knew what she wanted to do when she grew up, make the world fabulous in print! Abenaa also had a vision to establish a garment factory in Ghana which would be a source of employment and training to so many. Well in 2013 Abenaa took the first bold steps to do just this, opening a small production unit in Ghana's capital Accra.
Ohema Ohene is an international brand and has had much success in its early years of existence. To move to the next level and to complete the brands vision we now need to raise £100k to complete our project which is to establish a well equip garment factory. The premises will offer accommodation to local staff and guest practitioners and skills developers from across the globe.
With £40k we can complete the purpose built factory complete with accommodation for workers. With £80k we can complete stage one and purchase specialist machinery. With £100k we can complete stage one and two, as well as hire one overseas trainer to teach local seamstress and tailors correct manufacturing skills.
We've already gotten the project underway but need your help to see us to completion. Your pledges will allow us to increase our capacity and grow our brand. This would allow us to offer employment to at least 50+ new workers, whilst also allowing us the capacity to give training to local under skilled individuals wanting to perfect their skills in garment manufacturing to an international level.
Ghana is a vibrant developing country full of talented individuals just needing a chance, help us to help them, help themselves. By purchasing one of our products you are helping us to sustain jobs as well as create new ones, offering a source of stability to young people and individuals desperate for employment.
We love what we do and love even more that our garments go that bit further, changing the lives of those who work for us and who wear our products.
We are giving as rewards pieces from our forthcoming Menswear Spring Summer 2016 collection which will be produced by our existing team and with your pledges new employees wanting to join our brand. Be one of the very few in the world to own pieces from the collection, whilst helping us get one step closer to completing our project. Every little helps and we're very grateful for all your support!
