Shakira's Campaign for Education

Shakira speaks as an honorary chairperson for the “Global Campaign For Education” at the Capital in Washington D.C. on Tuesday.

The Colombian singer, 31, shared her experience growing up in the developing world where parents are desperate to provide education for their children.

“Education can really save lives”, said Shakira. She also mentioned that according to her sources, 226 million teenagers can’t attend secondary school due to violence or being forced to work.
