Angelina Jolie, who some might say is more notable right now for her humanitarian work than Hollywood, has opened a girls-only school just outside Kabul in Afghanistan. E! News confirmed that the United Nations Agency on Refugees ambassador and future Mrs. Brad Pitt chose the location based on the high level of refugees in the region "that traditionally favors boys' education over girls'."
The school currently has 200-300 attendees and Jolie told E! News that she will continue to fund her efforts through her new retail jewelry line. The Style of Jolie collection is designed in collaboration with Robert Procop, who created her engagement ring, and will donate 100 percent of all profits to The Education Partnership for Children of Conflict. The line will be sold exclusively at Tivol, a Kansas City jeweler, beginning later this week.
