Shakira Takes Part in the Summit Of The Americas alongside Obama and Hilary Clinton

Global Superstar Shakira is currently taking part in the Summit of the Americas alongside Obama and Hilary Clinton which is being held in Cartagena, Colombia today and over the past few days. Shakira hopes the Summit will enable Colombia to take some big steps in the battle for early childhood development, which she started with her Barefoot Foundation and later through her work with the ALAS Foundation.

Shakira is convinced that education can truly change lives, and thus continues her work for disadvantaged children.


Here is her agenda (with pictures and videos included of the events that have happened of the past couple of days):
