Shakira Making A Difference In Colombia

Shakira is busy jet-setting around the world — but not for pleasure!

She’s on a philanthropy mission with the Barefoot foundation to help impoverished countries in Central and South America.

Her first stop was in Haiti, and she’s now helping lay the foundations (literally) for a school in Cartegena, Colombia. The school will help educate 1,500 impoverished children.

Said Shakira at the build site:

“We are very happy to be laying the first bricks of a school being built by the Barefoot Foundation in Cartagena. I want to thank so many people, but especially the mayor’s office because I think this is a very high risk area, it has been identified as a high risk area, and it is an area that a lot of other governments would have simply thrown into the waste basket.”

So inspiring!
