Rihanna, a global ambassador for the organization, was joined by French President Emmanuel Macron.

The event’s goal was to urge donors to finance the education of a quarter of a billion children worldwide who are currently out of school.

“This is a fight we’re never gonna stop fighting until every boy and every girl has access to education,” she told the crowd.

Keep up the good work, Rihanna!
