Rihanna Helped Raise Billions for Education Fundraising Overseas

Rihanna may have helped raised $2.3 billion dollars for global education on Friday, but she’s not even close to finishing her goal.

“We’ve made tremendous progress today, but of course, our work is never done,” Rihanna told the crowd at the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) fundraising conference in Senegal.

“We have a long way to go and this is a fight that we’re never going to stop fighting until every boy and every girl has access to education.” Rihanna preached at the podium.

Rih Rih was named GPE’s global ambassador to foster education last year. And since then the “Work, Work, Work” pop icon has been doing just that.

The Harvard Humanitarian has led donation drives through her Clara Lionel Foundation–that funds education, health and emergency response programs–and wrapped a mini doc where she visited a school in Malawi.

You better earn those miles for a cause, sis.
