Rihanna took to Twitter to ask world leaders what they’re doing to fund education

As if we needed another reason to absolutely love her, Rihanna has been messaging world leaders asking them to fund education in countries around the world, and we’re pretty sure that when RiRi asks you to do something you have to do it (right?).

Things all went down on Friday (June 23rd), when RiRi took to Twitter to start messaging the leaders of the world to find out what they were going to do to #FundEducation.

The singer messaged the likes of Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Tradeau, France’s Emmanuel Macron, Argentina’s Mauricio Macri, and the German governmental press- and information-agency, Steffen Seibert.

"Hey Navy," Rihanna wrote on Twitter, "I step up w/ me and be a @GlblCtzn ! Demand that #G20 leaders agree in July to support 4 @GPforEducation."

The star then sent her tweets to world leaders.

While Rihanna might not have expected a response from people, two of the four people she messaged on Twitter replied to her.

Rihanna’s move comes after she travelled to Malawi to teach math to children and to see how the country’s education program could be improved. The whole thing was a part of the Global Partnership for Education that aims to solve the problem of 263 million children and youth who are currently out of school.


Part of the Global Citizen and the Global Partnership for Education campaign is to get the G20 leaders to “increase, prioritize and look for innovative ways to finance education,” which includes seeing overseas spending on education increased. It’s great to see Rihanna using her platform to help further this incredible and essential cause.
