BOGOTA: Shakira placed the cornerstone of the two colleges in Columbia when he made a five-month world tour to which Germany, Brazil and the United States also stopped.
The famous pop singer and philanthropist visited the historic city of Cartagena on Friday and ordered the first bricks for a school that serves about 1,000 children. Then he rushed to the hometown of Barranquilla, where he began building a similar facility for dozens of fan enthusiasts.
Schools are built by Pies Descalzos, Shakira-led Foundation, which currently directs three schools of disadvantaged children.
Shakira in Bogota on Saturday can decide on El Dorado's world premiere, where 35,000 people will sing at a suitable venue.
