Natalie Portman: Help Educate Girls in Kenya!

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!

    Really? She shlould first start educating her people in her own country israel how to stop the murdering of palestinians childrens, I can’t stand this people from israel wanting to do good for other people but at the same time suport the crimes of their governament against the palestinians people.
    Hypocrit Natalie speak up about the murder of the palestinians childrens who will never have the chance to achieve their dreans thanks to your governament.

    Annie Says:

    The cause is a noble one, however the fact that she can be a mouthpiece for this cause while still supporting the Zionists and the Hollywood elites such as Polanski suggest to me that this is comming from her ego rather than her heart.

    Also – Too.Much.Botox. When will women learn?

    Hypocrite (Eric Gibson Cartman Says:

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who think this way.
    The sad part is the jewish community OWN THE MEDIA in US… so we don’t get the real news and we see the movies they want, with them portrayed as poor victims of the bad, evil and cruel germans.
    When will this stop?

    The Truth Says:

    @you guys are ridiculous: Agree with you. She always did charity work before. You can”t just do charity to win an Oscar. You really has to do work that is worthy are the Oscar people.

    Annie Says:

    @Eric Gibson Cartman – ia. The Jewish holocaust was terrible, but at this point in time the best thing to do would be to stop feeling like victims and learn the lesson from history so that this never happens again. However the whole situation in the middle east just proves that many people in the world still have the exact same attitude that caused the holocaust in the first place.

    And Natalie is entirely different from Angelina. Angelina has always been very much her own person and has never supported any of this political elitist B.S like Nat. Angelina woudn’t even reveal in public which presidential candidate she planned on voting for.

    Leni Says:

    Yea, talk to the celebrity friends. She wants publicity much? and that is why her PR people are responding here too. She wants to replace Angie. LOL

    HILARIOUS Says:

    Oh !!! Look at her with this straight-A student speech of my a$$.
    I’m no racist, no anti-Semitic, but let’s face the facts :
    1) Hollywood is run by Jews and should be called Jewllywood
    2) If Natalie was not Jewish she wouldn’t be an actress and a working actress at this
    3) Hollywood and politics go together and her Oscar as best actress is also a gesture towards Israel meaning the unconditional support of the USA
    4) indeed if she really was caring about poverty and justice in the world she would one day in her lifetime speak about Palestine but she will never do so.

    Lin jo Says:

    She will win the oscar because she is jew and please someone tell her to go back to israel and teach her army of assassins to stop killing palestinians by the hundreds, there is a lot kids in her backyard who will never have the chance in life because they are dead and some other because they have no school since israel gov have destroyed 60% of the palestine schools and does not alowed them to rebuild. Fu.. you natalie!!

    Wow Says:

    Wow, you guys are all a bunch of idiots. I am not sure why there’s so much hate towards Natalie, but maybe all of you should get a life.

    Before you go judging her, please explain to me what type of charity work you’ve done and the type of impact it had on others.

FAKE SMILE< FAKE VOICE< SHE IS SO ANNOYING

    The Facts Says:

    @Wow: I completely agree with your statements. I’m sure plenty of the people criticizing Natalie on here should really look at their own character before judging others.

    Tina Says:

    Free the Children is a great organization, don’t be hating.

    Eric Gibson Cartman Says:

    I’m sorry for my bad articulated comment, it’s just that Saint Natalie makes me mad and \\English is not my first language//.
    *
    I do maintain my points of view:
    - Jews own the media
    - The media owns the public opinion
    - Miss Hershlag is the poster girl of the jew media power
    - She talks about “educate girls in Kenya” when she got knocked up
    - And while jews still whine about their “holocaust”, ask for compensations, makes movies about it, defend a pedophile, who speaks about the palestinian?

    it looks like natalie year! the golden globe! most likely the oscar! and now the most wanted lips! she is the “it” girl now! wonderful that she is doing charity work!

    Maggie Says:

    I liked her much better when she wasn’t the “it” girl. These out reach charities to the world are noble and good, but it’s not like Americans have any issues in our own country that could use attention or dealing with. Let’s “save” the rest of the world while we burn, and watch as everyone hates us more and more every day.
