Shaki Helps Rebuild School In Haiti

| Filed under: InspirationShakira


She has such a good heart.

Shakira's Pies Descalzos Foundation, along with the Interamerican Development Bank, will help in rebuilding one of Haiti's historic public schools, The Elie Dubois school, by contributing $800,000 for reconstruction and new supplies.

After the school was destroyed in last year's earthquake, the Haiti government was in desperate need for financial assistance to rebuild the public school. Both Shakira and the IDB believe that reconstructing the school will help transform Haiti's entire educational system.

"I am convinced that the only thing that will change the fate of Latin America and the Caribbean will be governments placing themselves at the center of the investment towards a quality education for all boys and girls, from birth and thereon in," said Shakira.

Hear hear!

Good work, Shaki. We always so inspired by your endless charitable contributions.

    Re: sockie – Who cares WHY they do it, at least they are doing it. I honestly believe Shakira is doing this out of the goodness of her heart, she honestly cares about the under privileged girls of this world.

    Haiti needs total political restructuring, not just schools. The reason why the kids don't stay in school is due to the poverty caused by the corrupt politicians. A huge chunk of aid money sent to them is still just sitting there. People are still homeless and living in shacks. The politicians and corrupt cops turn a blind eye to it all, even though women are being raped daily by the gangsters. So yes, the school is a great start, but Haiti has a long way to go.

    Re: sockie – and if they didn't you'd criticize them. If 'normal' ppl like us can help out why cant they. Maybe some of them are actually doing it bc they care…..

    Shakira is so great. She can sing(so unique), can dance, can play two types of gutiars. play the harmonica, has an IQ of 140(genius level and graduated school at 15), is a philanthropist, and is so attractive. She has sold close to 60 million albums and 45 million singles. Her tours gross over 100 million dollars and she is the biggest and baddest Latin on the scene.
