Natalie Portman: Help Educate Girls in Kenya!

Natalie Portman has teamed up with Free The Children to launch The Power of a Girl, an initiative to spread the word about educating girls in developing nations.

“With women comprising 70 percent of the world’s poor, investing in the education of girls is one of the best ways to end the cycle of poverty,” Nat said. “I’m thrilled to be working with Free The Children and excited to see the ways in which youth throughout North America and the U.K. will be able to help send girls to school in Kenya, bringing them one step closer to achieving their dreams.”

From now until May 1, young people aged 13-21 are encouraged to raise funds for Kisaruni, Free The Children’s new all-girls’ secondary school in Kenya. Finalists will be chosen in May and asked to share why they think it’s important to empower girls through education.

The winner will take home Natalie‘s Rodarte dress from the AFI Fest premiere of Black Swan and the chance to travel to Kenya over the summer!

That’s so nice of her to use her celebrity status and Black Swan fame to help the poor.

Suddenly she wants to help the girls in Kenya . Where were you before that hypocrit ? Oscar time

She was doing charitey work before her mega glory in black swan! Dont think her doing charitey work is going to influence her getting an oscar or not its to do with ehr actign abilty get your facts right!!

@Kaz and Hypocrite

You sound like your the same fool… To start with the jewelry she wore was given to her she did not buy them. I’m pretty sure she donates them soon after most celebrities do that same with the outfits. Seems she is donating much of her wardrobe to help the kids. Also Nat has her own charity called FINCA she helps woman get loans for help to start a business so they can eventually support their family b/c there is no man involved. Say what you want but you haven’t learned enough about her foundations to say **** about her.

As for Kaz take your meds or stop smoking the funny cigarettes. To hate on someone so much is like cancer it will eventually consume you seems that is the case with you.

you guys are ridiculous @ 02/01/2011 at 12:00 pm

WHAT ARE YOU GUYS TALKING ABOUT? she has been doing charity work for years!! plus, she doesn’t even need this for an oscar, everyone knows that. she’s gonna win one for sure. she’s doing it now, not to help her win, because she knows that her oscar buzz might help bring more attention to the cause of the charity. jeez!

and celebrities do not buy their jewelry they wear on the red carpet, jewelers approach stars to wear their product and then the stars return it. why does that have anything to do with her charity work.

engourage your celebrity friends, not us
I don’t have money

said in one

Natalie is an amazing role model to look up to! Best ive seen in my generation!!!

Yes, she does deserve an Oscar. Unlike you, who deserves nothing but a good english teacher.
