Rihanna Appointed Global Ambassador To Champion Child Education
Rihanna is “Work”-ing on education.
Her Clara Lionel Foundation has partnered up with Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen on a multi-year initiative to support education across the world.
Rihanna is hoping to advocate for more than a quarter of a billion children who are not currently in school as well as about 330 million students who aren’t learning in the schools they’re in through this partnership.

As GPE’s new Global Ambassador, RiRi hopes to reach more than 60 developing countries, prioritizing those with the most need, including children in conflict and crisis areas.
Earlier this year, Rihanna announced her new scholarship program through the Clara Lionel Foundation, which was founded in 2012 as a tribute to her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.
