Shakira has met with U.S. President Barack Obama to discuss her charity campaign to educate underprivileged kids across the world.

The Hips Don't Lie singer, who is an ambassador for UNICEF and runs her own charity The Barefoot Foundation, is calling for impoverished children to be given better access to education. And she took her campaign to the White House on Monday (22Feb10) to speak to Obama about increasing investment in the scheme.

She says, "It was such a privilege to sit down with the President in the Oval Office to discuss our shared commitment to education and early childhood development. We agreed that investing in our children is the smartest strategy governments can use to boost economic growth, fight poverty, and promote global security and peace. We will be working closely with the President and his staff to implement his vision - for Latinos, children in the United States, and around the world."

In December (09), Shakira spoke at England's prestigious Oxford University to discuss the same topic. (KD/WNWCHP/PAW)
