Angelina Jolie: Ethiopia Visit With Zahara and Shiloh

For Zahara Jolie-Pitt, a recent family trip to Africa also turned into a visit to her world back home.

Angelina Jolie took a side trip during a goodwill mission to Kenya, flying to Ethiopia for two days with daughters Zahara, 4, and Shiloh, 3. This was the first time Z had returned to her home country since being adopted four years ago.

“One priority for them on the trip was looking for a place to build a TB and AIDS clinic in Zahara‘s name,” People reports – Z‘s big brother Maddox, 8, already has an organization in his name in Cambodia that aids ill and underprivileged kids.

Angelina, a Goodwill Ambassador, also visited Dabaab Refugee Camp on her trip, a camp that over 300,000 Somali refugees call home.

    Oh come on Jared! It is hard for me to believe you don’t know about The Maddox Jolie-Pitt Millennium Project. It encompasses a humongous area of some 200+ square MILES, an area that houses 6,000 people. AJ has built schools, health clinics, orphanages, a soy milk factory. The MJPMP employs over 70 people to discourage poaching in the mountains there that are one of the last refuges of the Asian tiger in Cambodia. They also fund The Maddox Chivan Childrens’ Health Care Clinic in Phnom Phen.

    “And so, yeah, what she wound up doing was crazy. Who but a crazy person decides to take care of a situation in her own backyard by expanding her sphere of influence from 39 hectares to 60,000, which comes to 230 square miles? Who but a crazy person looks up Stephan Bognar, a guy she read about in National Geographic because he was trying to save the animals in Baghdad’s zoo as well as the lions abandoned by Uday and Qusay, and hires him to run a conservation project involving the better part of northwest Cambodia, and then, when she figures out that it can’t work if it’s just a conservation project, goes to the big policy symposium in Davos so that she can meet economist Jeffrey Sachs and learn how to turn her conservation project into a self-sustaining Millennium Village, in accordance with UN development goals? Sachs has been working to create Millennium Villages in Africa, and there are about eighty of them. But Angelina Jolie doesn’t have a house in Africa. She has a house in Cambodia, so that’s where she — or, to be more precise, the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Project — puts her Millennium Village. It’s the first and only one in Asia, the first and only one outside Africa, and in its purview there are ten villages previously isolated from one another, about six thousand villagers and seventy-two employees — some of them poachers now employed as rangers — drawing their paychecks from Angie and Brad.”

    Angelina Jolie Takes Zahara to Ethiopia

    By Mary Green

    It turns out that Angelina Jolie’s recent goodwill mission in Kenya was also a homecoming for one member of the Jolie-Pitt family.

    While Jolie, 34, and Brad Pitt, 45, were “on a trip to Kenya with their children, Angelina stopped in Dabaab Refugee Camp, and also flew to Ethiopia with Zahara and Shiloh for two days,” a close family friend tells PEOPLE.

    The girls’ trip was “the first time Zahara had been back home since her adoption,” according to the friend. Zahara, 4, was adopted from Ethiopia in 2005. “The trip was about keeping up that culture for her.”

    One priority for them on the trip was looking for a place to build a TB and AIDS clinic in Zahara’s name, which would be similar to the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Project in Cambodia, an organization that helps impoverished and ill children.

    While the girls were away, Pitt and the rest of the family – Madddox, 8, Pax, 5, and 1-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – stayed behind in Kenya. “The family has been having a wonderful time,” on this trip,” says a pal. “The children are having so much fun.”

    Earlier in the trip, Jolie visited Dabaab Refugee Camp, home to nearly 300,000 Somali refugees, with nearly 7,000 more arriving every month due to the food crisis in Somalia where nearly 3.6 million people are starving.

    “Okay: Even she uses the word crazy to describe what she’s wrought. Because one of the things a Millennium Village needs to stay within UN Millennium development goals is a school, so she built a school. But how are the kids going to get to the school? So she started building roads. But how are the kids going to get enough to eat once they get to the school? It’s not just a matter of feeding them out of one’s own largesse. It’s a matter of feeding them in such a way that they keep getting fed, long after one’s own largesse is withdrawn. So she built a soy-milk factory, which makes use of not only the local crop but also the largesse of the local farmers. And so, in the three months since milk from the microfactory started flowing, the number of students at the school increased from 699 to 810… and that’s just one aspect of the village. Four times a week, she’s in touch with Bognar, helping him manage the water-conservation projects and the soil-conservation projects and the biomass-for-fuel projects and everything else that she has so far been paying for out of her own pocket.”

    @Ms.JOLIE4ever!: They will adopt another child from Africa .

    Gosh knows they need another one to fix the mess of a relationship that they have! Works like a charm!

    i heard she was having an affair with a gay model ! of course its not true ! but i can imagine a gay falling in love with this godesse ….. like me hahaha

  • right?

    I have the feeling that Angelina is so far Beyond Brad Pitt that she’s gonna en up like the road Runner a million miles ahead of him while he’s still stuck on creating his “architecture career” angie is spearheading the Zahara TB/aids clinic in Ethiopia. He woulda been there with Ange and Zahara/shiloh if he was a a major part of the project. Angie might let him put the Pitt name on it so he could get some praise but it doesn’t mean jack siht in the long run. I also get the feeling that Shiloh wants to be with mama JOLIE 24/7

    “And so: better, right? Angelina has to be better, or else she wouldn’t be able to do what Sachs says she does, what Stephan Bognar says she does, what Erin Trowbridge — Sachs’s advisor and Angelina’s occasional travel partner — says she does: connect immediately with people who have no idea who she is. “For her, the dirtier she can get, the better it is,” Trowbridge says. “She’d prefer to camp at the village where we’re staying, if it’s possible. She always wants to know what she’s talking about: ‘This is what the morning looks like in this village. This is what nighttime looks like. This is what it’s like to be a woman. This is what it’s like to feed a family. This is what it’s like not to. This is what it sounds like if you can’t.’ We work in deeply impoverished rural areas. It’s a three-hour drive in Ethiopia to the nearest town, and it’s very hard work to get there. The people have no clue who she is. And she’s able to be herself in that situation. You look at her, and you can see what life was like for her before she got so famous. It’s the same when she’s with her children. You know, she’s the one who’s carrying the backpack, she’s the one who’s taking the kids off the plane. She has not chosen an easy life.”

    I wish we could see new pics from this trip. I think it’s time for a little sister for Zahara :)

    Seriously where did the Angie-haters, who are now attacking her children with some hateful comment, where did they crawl from…Are you envious because her children are growing up with love and warmth..and you haters didn’t?

    See the haters (a/k/a/ Jenhens) have invaded this site too. They do so many wonderful things for the less fortunate and I applaud them for that. they could just write a check for whatever amount their accountants tell them to, but they don’t. As Bill O’Reilly once said about Jolie (after his team investigated her humanitarian causes and missions), she walks the walk, not just talks the talk. The twins looked pretty healthy when last seen in Japan. Heard there were a couple of photos on a website called JBB (or JJB, or something like that), and that they were both chubby and the little girl had pierced ears. If they’re seen with their children, then they’re pimping them out for PR. If they’re children are not seen, there must be something wrong with them. Talk about a lose/lose scenario. Anyway, glad there are people in this world who actually care about others and use their fame and resources to help improve their dire situations. Keep up the good work!
