Angelina Jolie is not only putting in her time to help kids across the world, but also a lot of money.
Mere days after returning from a trip to the Congo and Rwanda as part of her work as a UNHCR ambassador, she confirmed that she has opened up an all-girls school in Afghanistan. The school is located just outside the capital city of Kabul, a region that has historically favored boys' education over girls'. Angelina also said she picked the location for its high refugee population due to regional fighting when the Taliban was in power.
The school was created in conjunction with her new foundation, the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict. And not only is the school finished, it's currently in session and educates between 200-300 girls every day.
Angelina said she's planning on opening more schools for girls throughout the world and has recently launched a jewelry line to help fund this project. Her personally designed jewelry collection, Style of Jolie, will soon hit retail stores and all proceeds will go directly towards her foundation.
"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," she said to E! News.
Angelina was reportedly fully hands-on with the project and collaborated extensively with her long-term jewelry designer, Robert Procop. "The intention was to create something beautiful but more importantly to provide children an opportunity to have an education. We both believe every child has a right to an education," he said.
The Style of Jolie will be available exclusively in Tivol, a Kansas City jeweler. But if you can't make the trip, it's pretty much a guarantee that pieces from the collection will soon be popping up on eBay.
