(Newser) – Angelina Jolie's latest humanitarian project: an all-girls primary school in Afghanistan. The school is near Kabul, where the educational focus is typically trained on boys, and Jolie tells E! between 200 and 300 students are currently enrolled. Her plan is to open more of these kinds of schools, funded by the release of The Style of Jolie, a jewelry line she designed. "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," Jolie says. (Note that this is not her first foray into jewelry design.)

She"s not one to seek out the poparotsi (anymore) She's more of a humanitarian. She could "care less" what we think!! It's for the kids that are important to her. augie2 you got it all wrong. You must be awful jealous of her to say something like that! Shame on you.
