Angelina Jolie Opens All-Girls School in Afghanistan

by at . Comments

We have not made this point in a little while, but: Angelina Jolie is awesome.

E! News confirms that this UNHCR Goodwill ambassador has opened up an all-girls school just outside of Kabul, Afghanistan.

The location was chosen because that area typically favors male education over female education, while many refugees have been returning to the village after the fall of the Taliban.

The school teaches over 200 young women, with Jolie making plans to open similar institutions around the world in the near future.

Jolie is funding these massive projects by selling personally designed jewelry to retailers for the first time.

"Beyond enjoying the artistic satisfaction of designing these jewels, we are inspired by knowing our work is also serving the mutual goal of providing for children in need," the actress told E! News.

Really, Chelsea Handler, for the work of a "demon," this is pretty impressive.

As for Jolie's other half? Brad Pitt will also be saving the world this way. Check out the World War Z trailer now!
