On Monday, Rihanna asked Minister-President Mark Rutte and Minister Sigrid Kaag for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation in a tweet for 100 million dollars (87.5 million euros) for education for children in developing countries.
“Hoi Sigrid Kaag and Mark Rutte, I know that the Netherlands advocated worldwide education in February, so I would like you to support me. Are you going to give 100 million dollars for GPforEducation at the Global Citizen Festival on September 29?” writes Rihanna. The singer closes her message in Dutch. “Thank you.”
The singer also mentions her foundation Clara Lionel Foundation in the message.
The Global Citizen Festival in New York is free, but only accessible to people who are committed to the actions of Global Citizen. This organization wants to tackle extreme poverty in the world.
Hi @SigridKaag @markrutte @MinPres! I know that the Netherlands wanted to pledge to support global education back in February, so I’d love if you joined me now! Will you provide $100M to @GPforEducation on Sept 29 at the @GlblCtzn Fest? Dank je! @claralionelfdn 🇳🇱📚
