NAKIKISANGKOT si Natalie Portman para sa isang dakilang layunin.
“I’ve been very interested in girls’ education,” sabi ng aktres, 35, sa People. “So I did some research and saw that WE – previously known as Free the Children – was really the most efficient and effective school creator.”
Dagdag niya, “In 2015, I traveled to Kenya in support of WE’s Power of a Girl project and was able to see the ripple effect that a girl’s education can have. WE has young people in developed countries – primarily in North America – raising money to build schools for their peers in developing countries like Kenya, China, and India. It’s an amazing way to engage young people.”
Pagkagaling sa Kenya, naging inspirado si Portman sa kahalagahan ng teamwork.
“WE creates this sustainable system, so it’s not just a new school, but also wells, health clinics and organic gardens that the locals learn how to tend for food,” aniya. “The goal is to build a village that can be sustained by local people for the rest of its lifeline.”
Bilang pagdiriwang sa dakilang pagkakawanggawa, magkakaroon ang WE ng serye ng 14 stadium-size event na gaganapin sa Canada, U.S, at sa U.K.
“WE Day brings together world-renowned speakers and award-winning performers with tens of thousands of young people to celebrate their contributions and kick-start another year of change,” pahayag sa website ng WE. – People.com
