Shakira, the popular Colombian singer, is using her famous hip-shaking moves to benefit a good cause. Recently, her Barefoot Foundation contributed $400,000 to restore a Catholic girl’s school in Haiti that was damaged during the earthquake. Shakira believes that education is vital for Haiti’s proper development and growth. The project aims to construct a nine-classroom school accommodating 250 students and will take almost 14 months to complete. Shakira met the students who were ecstatic about the new school. They are delighted that a celebrity is taking an interest in their school, and they hope to learn more and improve their educational experience. It is heartening to see celebrities making a meaningful impact in disaster-stricken areas, and we congratulate Shakira on her noble initiative.
