World-renowned artist Rihanna joined GPE as its first ever Global Ambassador in 2016.
Through a multi-year partnership, Rihanna's Clara Lionel Foundation, international advocacy group Global Citizen and GPE campaign together to ensure that girls and boys in the world's poorest countries can get a quality education.
In her role as GPE Global Ambassador, Rihanna encourages world leaders and policymakers to boost their support for global education and education in emergencies through GPE. As one of the greatest artists of our generation, Rihanna amplifies this essential work to bring about real change.
Rihanna's voice and travels to countries where GPE is actively engaged are hugely influential in improving the lives of girls and boys everywhere.
In early 2018, Rihanna attended the GPE Financing Conference, where she promised to continue the fight for education to ensure all children have access to quality education.
