Nicki Minaj Has Been Giving Aid to Indian Village: ‘Our Work Is Far From Done’
Nicki Minaj wowed fans on Twitter when she offered to pay college tuition and student loan debt earlier this month. But it looks like the rapper has a much broader approach to charitable endeavors than many realized.
Posting on her Instagram account, Minaj revealed that she's helped to fund two water wells to help bring clean water to a village in India. The village now has a tailoring school, a computer center and the two water wells because of Minaj's contributions.
She explained to her fans they will be able to partner with her through an official charity soon.
“This is the kind of thing that makes me feel the most proud,” she wrote on IG. “The money I’ve sent to this village in India for the last couple years [via my Pastor Lydia Sloley] has gotten them a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS. We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl don’t even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done. I’ll tell you guys more about my charity work in the near future in case you’d like to be a part of it. Love.”
In early May, Queen Barbz went on her Instagram page to prove that she'd paid thousands of dollars of student of loans. The rap superstar posted a list of names and their debts, which included book fees, loans and tuition she paid off. In the end, Minaj has paid off $18,000 to students who needed financial help.
“This makes me so happy. [A few from the other day] I’ll do another impromptu payment spree in a month or 2 but pls know that I’m launching my official charity for Student Loans/Tuition Payments VERY SOON! You’ll be able to officially sign up! I’ll keep you posted!” she wrote.
