Angelina Jolie will be using the proceeds from a new jewelry line to fund an all-girls school in Afghanistan.

According to Reuters, Jolie is launching a new jewelry line next week to help fund the a new girls-only school near Kabul. The school, which educates about 250 girls, was opened by Jolie last November.

Jolie said that she hopes the new jewelry line will help her open several more schools in the area.

The actress told E! Online: “Beyond enjoying the artistic satisfaction of designing these jewels, we are inspired by knowing our work is also serving the mutual goal of providing for children in need.”

Jolie worked with jewelry designer Robert Procop to design the “Style of Jolie” jewelry line, which will go on sale next week.

Procop said: “We launched this collaborative collection with the intent that 100 percent of the profits will go to charity … The intention was to create something beautiful but more importantly to provide children an opportunity to have an education … The beauty of these creations is matched by the beauty of spirit behind Angelina’s most heartfelt mission—to empower children in crisis. The first funds from our collaboration together have been dedicated to the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict and we have recently completed a school in Afghanistan.”

This isn’t the first time that Jolie, who is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, has funded a school. In 2010, she opened a girls-only school in eastern Afghanistan.

The new jewelry line will go on sale for the first time on April 4 at the jewelry store Tivol in Kansas City.
