After Cannes, Priyanka Chopra is in Ethiopia

  • Print


After slaying the red carpet at Cannes, Priyanka Chopra is now in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa.
Sharing a video on Instagram, Priyanaka, who is also UNICEF's Goodwill Ambassador, wrote, "Day 1: My first visit was to the Sibiste Negasi Primary School in Addis Ababa. In Ethiopia, primary school enrollment between 2000 and 2017 has TRIPLED. This is because of the Ethiopian government's investment in education and its dedication to the future of the country…but there is still so much work to do. 2.6 M children of primary and secondary school age are out of school, and 50% of children attending school drop out by grade 8. Because of poverty children are responsible for much more than just learning, like caring for siblings, walking miles to collect water and other house hold chores…things that should not be a child's responsibility at any age. A child is a child. @unicef's efforts, along with a very committed government, are focused on getting every child in school, ensuring every child has a quality education, and that every child completes school. Thank you Principal Abebech, Dagmawit (7th grade), and all the other students who made my first day in ethopia so special. Go to my stories to follow this trip. @unicefethiopia #achildisachild #foreverychild."
