Angelina Jolie has donated $75,000 to help fund a school for girls in Afghanistan

Angelina Jolie, actress and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, has donated $75,000 to help fund a school for girls in Afghanistan.

In October 2008 Angelina visited the Tangi region in the war-torn country  & instantly knew she had to help out in any way she could. 18 months later the all girls school opened its doors.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Laila (14) praised Jolie and the U.N. for pouring money into education. “I always had hopes & dreams of going to school. The hope to become a qualified teacher has revived in me,” she said.
