Shakira: Initiating a Tidal Wave of Change [VIDEO 1:39]

“I am convinced that education is the vehicle to break the cycle of poverty.” Through her foundation, Shakira Mebarek has built schools that also serve as community centers in some of the poorest neighborhoods in her home country of Colombia. “We want to initiate a tidal wave of change to restore education as a birthright and not as luxury for every child no matter what…no matter what circumstances they are born into.” May this vision for children be embraced by education stakeholders around the world, and here in the United States. Break the cycle of poverty by providing a quality education for every child, everywhere.
