Besides being one heck of a musician, Wyclef Jean is also a passionate ambassador for his birth country Haiti.

In 2005 Jean started Yele Haiti — a program dedicated to supporting projects that make a difference in education, health, environment and community development for the impoverished country.

To continue his good work, Wyclef  has announced plans to build a school in his native country with the help of celeb pals like Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie. He recently told HollyScoop.com:

“I want to start working on building a school. It’s going to be called the Yele Center. Hopefully I can start the fundraiser in six months, and I have the model.I want something that’s sustainable for kids. One person got me out of Haiti, my parents got me to America. I took the dream back to Haiti. If I could just save one kid with that school, and get the next Wyclef Jean or the next Shakira, I’ll be satisfied.”

To learn more about Jean’s work in Haiti, visit Yele.org and find out how you can get involved! Good luck Wyclef — we know you can make it happen!
