Shakira teamed up with The Education Commission for its #LearningGeneration movement. The Colombian-born “La Bicicleta” singer, who is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, is showing how passionate she is about the role education plays in a sustainable future for children around the world.
In the moving video, above, Shakira joins global leaders to spread the message that quality education should be a priority for every nation. “Our future generations will surpass our greatest expectations if we give them the tools to do so,” she starts. “They have the talent, the potential, and the power to change the world for the better, but we know that their future will be written by how we act today.” Press play above to watch Shakira’s powerful speech in full.
