RIHANNA SAID she met the “bravest, most humble” children after visiting students in Malawi to promote education through her Clara Lionel Foundation.

In September, the Barbados-born star’s Clara Lionel Foundation partnered with the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen on an initiative designed to promote access to education for children across the globe.

“Working together, I know we can amplify our efforts and ensure that millions of children gain access to education globally,” Rihanna said in a statement about the program at the time.

As an ambassador for Global Citizen and the Global Partnership for Education, the superstar songstress met with educators, government officials, and mentors while promoting the benefits of education.

The 28-year-old, who last week attended the women’s march, toured the classrooms at student of  Lilongwe Girls Secondary school and met with the students during her charity trip.

“I met the bravest, most humble kids and young women this week. I can’t wait to share more,” she later wrote on Instagram.
