  • Rihanna Urged World Leaders to Provide Money for Education to the Poorest

The "Work" singer is scheduled to visit the country for a conference on education in the country alongside French President Emmanuel Macron.

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) - which brings together donors, worldwide organisations and the private sector - called the figure "a substantial increase in funding" compared to the $1.3 billion (1 billion euros) contributed over the past three years.

Speaking at the event, Rihanna said while tremendous progress has been made, there's still a long way to go, and the fight isn't over until every boy and every girl in the world has access to education.

"Rihanna doesn't hide it: she's part of the Illuminati, a branch of Freemasons", Diagne reportedly said.

The funding promise represents a massive increase on the 17 million euros pledged at the last conference in 2014.

In real news, RiRi's visit is actually tied to The Global Partnership for Education, which parallels the goals of The Clara Lionel Foundation in raising money for disadvantaged and impoverished children in multiple countries.

"We are here to raise money; we are here to build political will; we are here to draw attention to the urgency of the problem", she added.

Rihanna continues to be an advocate for education around the world.
