Rihanna made a roll call among World Leaders before their gathering at the G20 Summit on July 7 and 8 in Hamburg. The "Rude Boy" singer, who just started her own scholarship program, took to social media to reach out to Argentina's Mauricio Macri, Canada's Justin Trudeau, France's Emmanuel Macron, and German's Steffen Seibert to ask about their commitment to fund education.

Global Partnership for Education

On Friday, RiRi uploaded the campaign poster of Global Citizen which stated that "the decisions of our 20 most powerful leaders can change the future of millions at the G20 summit in Hamburg." She even asked her fans to join her in promoting the cause before the annual gathering.

This post was followed by a series of tweets specifically directed at the expected attendees of the upcoming summit. Rihanna first asked Macri of his plan to commit to funding education and fortunately got a positive response from the Argentinian president.

The Barbadian artist proceeded to her next addressee, Trudeau, and asked him if he is considering to recommit to funding educational programs.

Rihanna is hoping to count on the Prime Minister after he promised to invest in First Nations education during his campaign in 2015. The Canadian leader also responded to Rihanna and cited Marie Claude-Bibeau's efforts to increase women's access to education.

In fact, the Minister on International Development recently announced the progress of the government's health and welfare projects in Haiti which specifically focus on women and youth.

The development programs intend to uphold the rights of women and children, including their rights to health care, protection, and access to basic education.

The 29-year-old singer and songwriter also tweeted the newly installed leader of France, Macron, who has yet to respond on her query at the moment of writing. She also addressed, Seibert, who guaranteed the artist that the matter is a "key area German development policy," citing their doubled effort to fund education since 2013. The German press secretary of the Chancellor's office also thanked the personality for her cause.

Rihanna's programs

The female artist has several programs under her name, including Believe Foundation for terminally ill children, Clara Lionel Foundation to provide access to health and education, and her latest cause, a scholarship program for those who want to pursue college. Applicants must be a citizen of the U.S., Barbados, Cuba, Brazil, Haiti, Guyana, or Jamaica in order to be qualified for the financial assistance.

“Higher education will help provide perspective, opportunities and learning to a group of kids who really deserve it. I am thrilled to be able to do this," Rihanna said as per USA Today.
