Rihanna visits Malawi school kids

Rihanna has flown to Malawi to help out African schoolchildren. The trip forms part of her empowerment tour.

The socially-conscious Rihanna helps poor kids around the world have access to proper education.

The pop sensation has been an ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), non-profit organization, since last September.

Through a multi-year partnership, Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF), international advocacy group Global Citizen and GPE campaign together to make sure the world’s poorest children have a chance to better themselves.

“Working together, I know we can amplify our efforts and ensure that millions of children gain access to education globally,” Rihanna stated.

Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty founded CLF in 2012 in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.

    I ask the question what people think about giving back and why. It is okay to give but you have to take care of yourself FIRST. Combermere school need your help. The mental clinic in your country needs help.

      It is not as if she has not given to Barbados, maybe she did not give to places where you may think she needs to give. The government needs to take care of the psychiatric and the school. Both are government run.

      I knew there was going to be this one person that says “what about us”. She donated 1.75 Million to the cancer clinic in the name of her grandmother, The Clara Lionel Foundation. You dont even know if she continually supports things there.

      combermere does not need HER help….why does it have to be her? as the person above said she has given to the cancer ward at the QEH. The govt “runs” barbados not rihanna.

      Its shocking that every topic had to be rounded off with politics. I wish that people had a different mindset. It’s so sad that the demon of politics is given so much free play.

    @Sydonette – well said. All of them so called celebrities use Africa as a pawn. Harry in England is in one too, when his people put them in that position in the first place. It makes them seem somewhat helpful. Rhianna needs to be careful of the education conveyor belt of slavery for the Elite. But then again………..

      Stupid comment; you have no idea how much that young lady has given back to her country. Geez! Shut up if you don’t know. Don’t assume.

    Jennifer You too ???
    You are damn if you don’t and still damn if you do .
    What is wrong with our Barbadian mentality ???
    What or who elite benefits from educating poor black African children ???
    We black Barbadian will keep stuck to the end of the totem pole and the Syrian, Trinidadian, Guyanese and Others will continue to believe that they are 1st class citizen, and many of us will continue to eat the crumbs from their tables because we only see negative in our fellow brothers and sisters . Start praising and stop criticizing.
    She has already helped the QEH, Combermere School and other organizations with her Charity business. W

    @Mikey – She needs to ensure that the systems are in place to ensure that these children are being taught to do the fishing rather than buying the fish. And for your information they will be just like us, working in their banks, insurance companies, tunnels mining, restaurants, Hotels, mechanic shops, pushing medicines, bars etc. WHO DO YOU THINK OWN THESE THINGS???? Not my people. Mind you we are in the majority and own minority wealth, while the ones in the minority holds the majority wealth, we truly have our panties and briefs in a twist. WE ARE THE DONKEYS BEING RIDDEN BAREBACK. Remove your blinkers and look carefully.

    Jennifer. You really have a self esteem problem. Rihanna does not sing my kind of music. She definitely is no Roberta Flack, Donna Summers, Barbara Streisand, Whitney Houston Jennifer Rush Dianna Ross and that lot. But she made it in her own way. And I salute her for her achievements in her way. go ahead, call yourself a donkey or I’d rather say jackass. Just leave her alone and wish her the best. It seems that you are a big failure in life and you want to bring down others with you. Some people are born great. Some achieve greatness and some people have greatness entrusted upon them.

    Rihanna has broken all the records, managed to stave iff the reord label sharks in a cut throat industry so that she is making money and not ending up bankrupt, donating to charities all over the world and has never forgotten where she came from. As a little girl from Westbury Rd. I think she’s done pretty well. She has also made sure her friends and family are well provided for . To all the crabs in a bucket who want to say she is no Whitney Houston…
    Thank God for that. She is Rihanna. She is Bajan, she is successful and charitable.

    Nuff said

    Rhiannah does not have to do NOTHING for anyone!! It is her money to do as she please. She has done more for barbados than many of our so called celebs What gets me sick is to look around and see nothing of her or her name anywhere. Only hearing you people talk her down about her every chance you get, and beg. Then to travel abroad and see posters of her and all that. Is she only good for you when u want something? The thing is she always hi-lights BIM in everything she does, her videos, her awards. What have BIM done for her? In my opinion she’s done more than her share!!!! Wunna too damn ungreatful!!! Ask frundell fun wuh wunna want, its he who egnoring all the fixes Barbados need. Stupseeee
