Shakira Opens A School In Colombia

On Monday, Shakira returned to her home country of Colombia to open her eight school through her non-profit Pies Descalzos (Bare Feet).

The school and community center serves 1,700 needy children from day care to high school age in a very poor part of Cartagena.

“I’m so happy to see so many joyful faces in these students,” Shakira told Billboard. “They’ll have the tools necessary to become good citizens, far from violence and drugs. We dream of the day in which there will be no child without an education in Colombia.”

Another highlight of the trip was that it was Shakira’s son Milan’s fist visit to the country.
