The Sun News (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

Shakira has laid the cor­ner­stones for two schools in her na­tive Colom­bia as she wraps up a five-month world tour that in­cluded stops in Ger­many, Brazil and the United States.

The fa­mous pop singer and phi­lan­thropist vis­ited the his­toric city of Carta­gena on Fri­day and laid down the first bricks for a school that will serve around 1,000 chil­dren. She then rushed to her home­town of Bar­ran­quilla where she in­au­gu­rated con­struc­tion of a sim­i­lar fa­cil­ity in front of dozens of ador­ing fans.

The con­struc­tion of the schools will be fi­nanced by Pies Descal­zos, a foun­da­tion run by Shakira that man­ages three schools for un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren.

Shakira is set to con­clude her El Do­rado world tour Satur­day in Bo­gotá.
