Shakira Opening School in Haiti




Shakira who's charity has already helped raise funds for Haiti will be building a school in the disaster stricken country. The Latin Songstress visited the island to make preparations for building the school. While in Haiti she met with child survivors.

The Haitian Barefoot school will be modeled after similar establishments created by Shakira's Pies Descalzos Foundation. The foundation is a charity that provides education, nutrition and psychological support to over 6,000 Colombian children displaced by violence.

"We need to think about the future of this country and of how Haiti's children can be useful to their societies tomorrow...Education is one of the fundamental tools with which to develop and rebuild Haiti," she said.
