And it’s all about the orphans. Angelina Jolie appeared yesterday at a press conference for the launch of Global Action for Children, a group that raises money for orphans in developing countries.
“I am here to simply ask you to think about orphaned children not as a burden but as a great opportunity,” Jolie said at the event. “Their education is an investment in our future. … They have had to work very, very hard to survive, but when they are given a chance, they grow strong, stronger than most. … The Lost Boys of Sudan are a great example.”
Global Action for Children aims to increase U.S. funding for orphans in developing countries by $2.5 billion per year.
