AMANDLA TEAMS UP WITH UBUNTU EDUCATION FUND
Amandla Stenberg is putting her celebrity status to good use. She has teamed up with Ubuntu Education Fund in support of the New York City gala on June 6th.
Ubuntu Education Fund is an organization that has set out to provide support to the children of Port Elizabeth, South Africa to make sure that they are able to have the best chance possible at jobs and education. Ubuntu Education Fund was founded to help the kids of Port Elizabeth stay health and enjoying just being kids.
Amandla, whose latest role as ‘Rue’ in the Hunger Games has given her international recognition, is turning out to be quite the charitable girl.
“I’m hoping to be doing more [acting projects], but right now I’m working with a lot of charities,” said Stenberg in April. “One is called No Kid Hungry, and it helps to make sure all kids are getting enough to eat. I’m also helping with the Ubuntu Foundation, which helps poor kids in South Africa.”
The young and talented star recently caught the eye of WME (William Morris Endeavors) and has signed with the talent agency. William Morris Endeavors has offices in New York City, Miami, Beverly Hills, Nashville and London. The agency represents some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry such as Adele, Lady Gaga, Usher, and Tim Tebow.
