Rihanna Named Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year

R&B superstar Rihanna has been acknowledged as Harvard University’s 2017 Humanitarian of the Year for her charity work. The 29-year-old Barbados singer will accept the honor on site at the university’s campus next Tuesday. Rihanna was named because Harvard recognizes her many
humanitarian projects, such as her building a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment facility in Barbados, and creating a scholarship program for students attending U.S. colleges from Caribbean countries. 

Harvard Foundation head Dr. S. Allen Counter commended Rihanna’s efforts on both fronts. Read his statement below:
Rihanna has charitably built a state-of- the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados. She has also created the Clara and Lionel Foundation Scholarship Program [named for her grandmother and grandfather] for students attending college in the U.S. from Caribbean countries, and supports the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, a multiyear campaign that will provide children with access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls and those affected by lack of access to education in the world today.
