Rihanna Supports Campaign for Increased Global Education Funding

 

Earlier this year, superstar singer Rihanna, the Global Ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), traveled to Malawi to visit key educators, the Malawian President, the Minister of Education and students. She was accompanied by GPE Board Chair Julia Gillard and Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans. Rihanna is supporting GPE in its replenishment effort to raise $3.1 billion in funding between 2018 and 2020. These funds would help GPE bring quality education to over 870 million children in 89 countries. For further details, read this article, which also includes a video link.
