Angelina Jolie's Education Initiative

Posted Wednesday April 9, 2008 4:40 PM GMT

Showing off her many faces, Angelina Jolie spoke at the Council on Foreign Relations on the desperate need for education to help bring about change and hope for the Iraqi child refugees.

During a speech in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, the pregnant Beowulf actress told the esteemed crowd, "It is a fact that the best way to heal children in conflict and their trauma is to focus their minds on their future."

"This population we're talking about is the future of Iraq," she added. "So to reach them now, to help deal with their trauma and refocus their minds on a possible future should absolutely be one of our top priorities."

Jolie, 32, added, "We need these kids ... to rebuild their country, to stabilize their country and eventually lead their country."
