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 sensitise parents on child development and parenting through various seminars and outreach programs.

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’.
