Shakira visits White House for charity campaign

Posted on: February 24, 2010

Pop singer Shakira met US President Barack Obama to discuss her charity campaign to educate underprivileged kids across the world.

“It was such a privilege to sit down with the president in the Oval Office to discuss our shared commitment to education and early childhood development. We agreed that investing in our children is the smartest strategy governments can use to boost economic growth, fight poverty, and promote global security and peace,” contactmusic.com quoted her as saying after the meeting Monday.

“We will be working closely with the president and his staff to implement his vision – for Latinos, children in the United States, and around the world.”

The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer, who is an ambassador for Unicef and runs her own charity The Barefoot Foundation, is campaigning to give better education to impoverished children.

She took her campaign to the White House on Monday to speak to Obama about increasing investment in the scheme.
