Angelina Jolie has opened another girls’ school in Afghanistan and plans to fund more from the proceeds of a jewellery line going on sale this week that she helped to design, according to a report.

Jolie, a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, funded the girls-only primary school in an area outside Kabul that has a high refugee population, E! News said in an exclusive report.

 

The school educates 200 to 300 girls, E! said. It showed pictures of the school, which opened in November, and a plaque acknowledging Jolie’s contribution.

 

Jolie also funded a girl school in eastern Afghanistan that opened in 2010, according to the UNCHR. E! said that Jolie plans to pay for more schools by selling a ‘Style of Jolie’ jewellery line that she helped create with jewellery maker Robert Procop.

 

The jewellery will go on retail sale for the first time today, April 4, through Kansas City jewellery store Tivol.
