Angelina Jolie has opened another girls school in Afghanistan and plans to fund more from the proceeds of a jewelry line going on sale this week that she helped to design, celebrity website E! News reported on Monday (April 01). Jolie, a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, funded the girls-only primary school in an area outside Kabul that has a high refugee population, according to the report. The school reportedly educates 200-300 girls. Jolie also funded a girl school in eastern Afghanistan that opened in 2010, according to the UNCHR. E! said that Jolie plans to pay for more schools by selling a "Style of Jolie" jewelry line that she helped create with jewelry maker Robert Procop. Procop designed the engagement ring given to the actress by Brad Pitt in April 2012. The jewelry will go on retail sale for the first time on April 4.
