This is INCREDIBLE! Rihanna just shared some really amazing news


Rihanna is a woman of many talents; a singer, fashion designer, business woman, and an all-round badass chick – but her latest venture is probably the most rewarding.

The Grammy-winning singer announced yesterday that she's launching a global scholarship program through her nonprofit charity, the Clara Lionel Foundation, to help students pay for college and university.

According to the singer, the new program will support citizens or natives of Brazil, Cuba, Barbados, Haiti, Grenada, Guyana and Jamaica in achieving higher education in the US.

Speaking to USA Today, Ri said: "To be able to give the gift of an education is actually an honour."

"Higher education will help provide perspective, opportunities, and learning to a group of kids who really deserve it. I am thrilled to be able to do this."

Rihanna launched the Clara Lionel Foundation back in 2012, and it was created and named after her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.

We think this is such a kind and thoughtful thing to do!
