Shakira has donated $400,000 to help rebuild a school in Haiti.
The Waka Waka singer has pledged to donate the huge sum to the country, after the school in the capital Port-au-Prince was damaged by an earthquake last year.
The 34-year old's donation of $400,000 will also be matched by the Inter-American Development Bank.
Speaking of the project, Shakira explained: "I'm convinced the key to achieve a dignified future for the Haitian people is through education,"
She added: "I'd like to say to the girls that this is an enormous opportunity that life is offering you - education. So make the most of it because I'm sure you can achieve any of your dreams."
The She Wolf hitmaker visited the Elie Dubois school last year and vowed to help them refurbish the educational department - shortly before the quake hit Haiti in early 2010.
