In 2016, Rihanna was named GPE's first-ever Global Ambassador; her role is to "encourage world leaders and policymakers to boost their support for global education and education in emergencies through GPE".

French President appeared alongside superstar singer Rihanna for an education summit in Senegal today.

"This is one of the, if not the, largest gatherings of its kind to really demonstrate political will, financial investment, the urgency of the education crisis", Alice Albright, CEO of the Global Partnership for Education told AFP.

"This is a fight that we are never going to stop fighting until every boy and every girl has access to education", the Barbadian singer said.

The heads of an association of Islamic religious groups in the African state demanded officials bar her from attending the Global Partnership for Education's financing conference in Senegal's capital, Dakar, on Friday (02Feb18) as they claimed she was a member of the Illuminati, a mythical group conspiracy theorists claim control world affairs.


Some 264 million children are not in school, according to the global partnership.

Rihanna on Thursday tweeted "merci" to thank Macron for co-hosting the conference, which she is also expected to attend.

The goal of the conference is to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for education in the poorest of nations. During the conference, Macron pledged that France would contribute $248 million to the fund, and called on other world leaders to donate as well.

Macron said education is "the only single response" to the extremism threatening West Africa.

Rihanna continues to be an advocate for education around the world. "France will always side with those fighting for a better education".
