“Slumdog Millionaire” star Freida Pinto will be using her celeb status for the greater good as the ambassador for Plan International USA’s Because I am a Girl initiative. Pinto was inspired to action after a life-changing visit to Africa’s devastated country of Sierra Leone.

The organization’s mission is to provide young females with the resources they need to create a self-sustaining life. This includes access to clean water, food and education.

“I have always been a true believer in the power of every individual, especially every girl,” said Freida Pinto. “Last month, I had the amazing opportunity to travel with Plan [International] to Sierra Leone and see firsthand how investing in a girl transforms an entire community.”
