Shakira in El Salvador

Latin pop star Shakira was in San Salvador Tuesday as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador promoting anti-violence activities among the youth of the country. From the UNICEF website:

At San Salvador’s Sports Palace, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and singer-songwriter Shakira greeted thousands of Salvadoran students who took part in a march against violence on Sunday.

“I am very glad to see you all gathered here, knowing that many of you, walking on the streets of your city since early morning, are already taking the first steps towards a better future for El Salvador,” she said.

Earlier in the day, more than 8,000 children and adolescents – including 6,000 students and 2,300 scouts – had marched in the streets of El Salvador’s capital city as part of a UNICEF campaign to protect children from violence.
