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!
