Winner of TV3's Ghana's Most Beautiful, Vera Oheneba Sarfoah [ESI], is set to launch a foundation this Saturday to help address teenage pregnancy menace in the Central Region.

Esi, who represented the Central Region in the Season IX of the reality show [2015], beat four other finalists to wear the covetous crown, which gives her a responsibility to impact on her society through an initiative of her choice

The foundation, PEMPAMSIE  has the primary aim of curbing and eradicating the high rate of teenage pregnancy in the Central Region through various programmes to be spearheaded by Esi with support from various stakeholders.

Esi's Pempamsie is being formed on the principles of the new Sustainable Development Goal 5, which seeks to achieve gender equality. The foundation seeks to prepare young girls to take up formal leadership roles. Young girls and the youth would also be empowered through  vocational training and mentorship programmes as well as scholarships.

She was hopeful the problem of teenage pregnancy  would be reduced in the country, especially the Central Region through the Pempamsie Foundation.

Esi was full of praise for TV3 Network Ghana Limited, its affiliate media houses and their mother company, the Media General Group, for the opportunities given her thus far in her reign.
