To improvise the status for women in Afganistan, Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has opened a school in there through her foundation The Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.
The 37-year-old actress has funded the girls only educational establishment, which caters to between 200 and 300 students, just outside of Kabul and hopes it will be the first of many schools she sets up.
Joile plans to fund more schools by selling her own self-designed accessories collection, the Style of Jolie, to retail stores for the first time with 100 per cent of the profits going to her new foundation, The Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.
“Beyond enjoying the artistic satisfaction of designing these jewels, we are inspired by knowing our work is also serving the mutual goal of providing for children in need,” Jolie said.
