Rihanna displays her Global Ambassador for Education duties as she pays a visit to Malawi to meet with educators, government officials, and school children to promote access to education for children.

RiRi dressed down and hit up a school on Thursday in Lilongwe. She became an ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education back in September, so she’s clearly diving into the role.

The socially-conscious Rihanna helps poor kids around the world have access to proper education. The pop sensation is an ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), non-profit organization, since last September.

Through a multi-year partnership, Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF), international advocacy group Global Citizen and GPE campaign together to make sure the world’s poorest children have a chance to better themselves.

“Working together, I know we can amplify our efforts and ensure that millions of children gain access to education globally,” Rihanna stated.
