#Rihanna gets $250 Million Donation From President Of France To Fund Girls’ Education
Updated: Mar 1, 2018
We are getting more comfortable with the philanthropist side of the pop-star icon, Rihanna. Through the midst of hit records and her booming cosmetic line (FENTY) she still makes time to give back. Following her 2017 meeting with French president and First Lady, Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron, where she lobbied President Macron to support funding for girls’ education in underprivileged countries, Rihanna and Macron finally sealed the $250-million deal with a hug at a conference in Dakar, Senegal this month!! Rihanna serves at the Global Ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and clearly doesn't take her title lightly. She shows us a great example of leadership, determination, and perseverance.
GO RIHANNA! MERCI PRESIDENT MACRON!
