Ali Hewson is doing her part to help alleviate poverty in Africa by launching a collection of t-shirts.
Ali explained why the cause is so close to her heart:
"I first travelled to Africa in 1985 with Bono and it was a journey that affected both of us deeply. We've been back many times since. We both want to show the beauty of the continent.
Kibera, where the school is situated, is one of the largest slums in Africa and is home to more than 100,000 orphaned children. The people who run the school are very dedicated, and the children so enthusiastic, we felt compelled and inspired by their energy. With these Ts we are able to provide funding to for basic school supplies, hot lunches and healthcare."
Bono's wife got help designing the Saharan inspired shirts from children in Kenya and can be purchased at the UK's Liberty department store.
