AbenaTay Ministries in collaboration with Women in Gospel Music has organized a Pre-Mothers Day When Women Worship concert dubbed: “Chavvah.”(life-giver).
The Chavvah “Pre-Mothers Days When Women Worship” concert, which was held in a grand style at the Nsawam Female Security Prison was aimed at providing an opportunity for women to come together and worship, fellowship with their incarcerated counterparts.
Lady Rev.

Stressing that, they believe that music is a powerful tool that will have a lasting impact on the lives of the inmates as well.
According to her, within the worship is a Chavvah female award segment whereby certain female pace-setters are presented with the Chavvah Award as a way of appreciating and encouraging women who go all out for their families and nation at large.
This year, under Chavvah Life-Givers Award, we intended to honour these extraordinary women namely; Mrs. Patience Baffoe-Bonnie -D.O.P Services, Mrs. Joana Fofo Tackie-Ottoo-D.O.P Welfare, Mrs. Sophia Osei-Bonsu -D.D.P (OLC) James Camp Prisons and Corp.

Since their commitment to reforming and rehabilitating inmates under their jurisdiction and of society at large is admirable and deserving of emulation.
