Shakira Meets Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff

Shakira gives Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff an autographed guitar during a meeting on Thursday (March 17) in Brasilia, Brazil.

“My meeting with Dilma Rousseff was highly positive. The President showed great enthusiasm to initiate projects in collaboration with ALAS for children aged 0 to 6 years living in poverty,” the 34-year-old Colombian singer told the press.

ALAS is a nonprofit organization created by prominent Latin American artists and business leaders to promote early childhood development.

Shakira also congratulated the President for a new program dedicated to building 6,000 kindergartens and preschools in the South American country by 2014.

    They’re both great, yes! I took some photos of her during the meeting at the Presidential Palace. Unfortunately, her concert in Brasilia was cancelled due to a heavy storm.
