Jolie Calls For Better Education For Iraqi Children

Hollywood star ANGELINA JOLIE has called on the international community to do more to ensure the education of Iraqi children is made a top priority.

Jolie – who visited Iraq last August (07) as part of her role as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador – met with other humanitarian workers on Tuesday (08Apr08) to discuss how to help Iraqi children regain stability through education following the war.

She told the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations, “The best way to heal children of conflict from trauma is to have them focus on their future.

“Every child has a right to education and conflict is not a reason to ignore that.”

Jolie has visited more than 20 humanitarian hot spots, including Iraq and Sudan’s troubled Darfur region, since becoming a U.N. ambassador in 2001.
