Jewelry For a Good Cause: Angelina's New Collection Betters the Lives of Afghan Girls

Sunday, April 7, 2013

Love her or hate her, Angelina Jolie has exerted some serious effort trying to help the impoverished and downtrodden.

Some of her lifestyle choices may be odd to some (like adopting kids left and right, making out with her brother and stealing a married man) but the actress has been doing her part in bettering the lives of children all over the world.

Her latest venture focuses on Afghanistan, where the plight of women and children has been categorically ignored even though it’s verging on a human rights catastrophe.

Jolie opened an all-girl school on the outskirts of Kabul where more than 300 students will attend. The project was funded by her Style of Jolie jewelry collection which she launched with Robert Procop, a famous designer and gem expert. All proceeds from the sale of these beautiful pieces will go towards this school and other various projects.

Here are some startling facts about being a woman in Afghanistan:

  • More women die in pregnancy and childbirth than almost anywhere else in the world. 1 in 50 women will die during pregnancy or childbirth—one every 2 hours.
  • 9 out 10 women are illiterate.
  • Women have more than 5 children on average, yet 1 out 10 children die before their fifth birthday.
  • Life expectancy is 44, one of the lowest in the world.
Here are some of my favorites
