Shakira and former Qatar Sheika help children

Shakira's surprising encounter with Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser

The Colombian singer and Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser sealed a deal so that more than 50,000 Latin American children in need receive education

It is a well-known fact that her humanitarian work has an important place in Shakira's heart. In 1997, the Colombian beauty founded Pies Descalzos, a non-profit organization that aims to help children in need to have access to education, and as a Unicef Good Will Ambassador, Shakira has always been committed to making the world we live in a little bit better. That´s exactly the reason why she traveled to Qatar and met another renowned philanthropist, fabulous Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser, the wife of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the former Emir of the State of Qatar.

"Conversing with Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, a remarkable woman and role model, who is revolutionizing education in Qatar and around the world," were the words the hitmaker posted with a nice picture of both women chatting. Shakira and the Arab royal come from very different worlds but they share the same passion: helping children in need to have better lives. The singer was very impressed with the work of the Sheikha, who, through different organizations such as the Qatar Foundation or the Education Above All Foundation, aims to provide with quality education to all children in the world.
