Angelina Jolie Opens All-Girls School In Afghanistan
We all know Angelina Jolie’s global charitable efforts and now everyone’s favorite humanitarian, mother and silver screen goddess is making a more permanent mark on the world by opening an all-girls school in Afghanistan, according to E! News.
And the Academy Award-winning actress plans to fund the educational institution with profits made from her newly-expanded jewelry collection, Style of Jolie.
The existing school currently houses about 300 students and the actress plans to open more educational facilities elsewhere, with 100 percent of the jewelry 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 told E! News of the line designed by Robert Procop – and if his name sounds familiar he’s the man behind Jolie’s $500,000 engagement bling.
“The beauty of these creations is matched by the beauty of spirit behind Angelina’s most heartfelt mission — to empower children in crisis,” Procop said.
And the collection’s newest pieces are just as close to Jolie’s heart as the cause itself. The 37-year-old designed a tablet shape necklace for her husband-to-be, Brad Pitt, which inspired the collection.
“These designs are timeless; they reflect her chic sense of style and also feminine strength,” Kam Heskin, the spokesman for the Robert Procop Design Studio, told E! News. “There are so many pieces that make this collection beautiful and unique.”
The Style of Jolie will be available this week exclusively in Tivol, a Kansas City jeweler.
