Angelina named the Godmother of Women for Bees
By Web Desk, International The News
Angelina Jolie would return to Cambodia soon to establish the next Women for Bees program in the region of Samlout where she has a home.
The Maleficent actress feels proud to raise awareness about bee conservation and the importance of investing in women’s education as part of her ongoing partnership with Guerlain.
As an ambassador of the luxury French beauty house, the 46-year-old was named the Godmother of Women for Bees — a female beekeeping entrepreneurship program that Guerlain launched last year in partnership with UNESCO.
“We wanted to make sure there was at least 50x women from 25 biospheres, to understand the biospheres and why it was important to map out and build the team,” she tells People.
Angelina Jolie says it’s “insane” that the importance of it is still being discussed. “It’s angering, really, isn’t it? That we somehow have to keep explaining this — it’s their right.”
On providing education opportunities for girls and women around the world, the Oscar winner said: When a young girl is born, she has the right to education, it’s her life.
