Singer, songwriter and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Angélique Kidjo.
We know you already believe in the importance of educating young women worldwide. Here’s a chance to share your enthusiasm directly with a group of students in Africa. Angélique Kidjo's new organization, the Batonga Foundation is working to support girls’ education in Africa. In Benin, Batonga will support 229 girls to continue their education by attending secondary school. Angélique Kidjo is inviting you to support these young women by emailing us your words and images of support. Your messages will be posted here on the UNGEI website and- most importantly- she will bring these messages to the girls in Benin in a few weeks.
