Obaatan Awaamu refers to the Akan proverb "the good mother doesn´t know a bad child or the good mother knows what her children will eat" meaning that with love and care a child can only be successful as there are no bad children. Only children who lack careness will fail. This symbol represents maternal love, careness, tenderness, compassion, empathy, consolation. It is a symbol for women only.
