Gospel musician Mary Agyemang has collaborated with Juvenile Reform Foundation- Ghana to help promote juvenile reforms in Ghana. The ‘change over’ hitmaker will spearhead upcoming programmes by the Foundation as its brand ambassador.

Mary Agyemang, who climbed to the limelight in the music and creative arts industry in 2009, will organise charity concerts both locally and internationally in conjunction with JRF-Ghana, to lead juvenile reforms in Ghana.

The proceeds will be used to cater for the formal education, technical and vocational training, and the general welfare of juvenile offenders (released and incarcerated) and vulnerable children in Ghana.

The silky voice singer, who is touted for thrilling her fans on stage, and JRF-Ghana will also visit religious organisations, schools and communities to educate the youth on delinquency and its consequences.

Mary will sensitize parents on child development and parenting through various seminars and outreach programs.

The 2017 Ghana Music Awards nominee expressed her excitement about the appointment. She said, “it’s such a great feeling to be working with (JRF)-Ghana to fulfill its vision of helping children in conflict with the law and child victims.”

The Executive Director of JRF-Ghana, Geoffrey Chaucer Ofori explained that Mary will play a vital role in the Foundation’s fight against juvenile delinquency in the country.

Some of Mary’s hit songs include: ‘Mpaebo’, ‘Di Wo Hene’, ‘Mpranpran Nyame’, ‘Mehwe Nyame’, and ‘Gyae Adwendwene’.

JRF-Ghana is an independent, non-governmental organisation that is concerned with tackling and further stemming juvenile crime and violence in Ghana.
