Watching Her Teach Kids Math Will Melt Your Heart!

June 9, 2017

Earlier this year, Rihanna took a trip to the southeastern African nation of Malawi. She went on behalf of her foundation, the Clara Lionel Foundation, and as a Global Ambassador.

My time in Malawi was so inspiring! Working with my @ClaraLionelFdn to improve the lives of students globally, alongside @GPforEducation… watch the clip on my YouTube ---> link in bio.

During her stay, she got to experience firsthand the many challenges the people of Malawi face on a day to day basis.

Many times, one teacher is responsible for 100 students, making it almost impossible to have a solid learning environment. Eventually, most students drop out due to poverty.

Rihanna says of this that it’s “Such a shame because they are so smart.”

In the clip, Rihanna is seen teaching math to a bunch of children, and it’s pretty much the sweetest thing you’ll see all day.

Also, Rihanna talks about the power of bringing music to the classroom.

So many feels watching this. See for yourself!
