Brad Pitt's Soon to be Wife Angelina Jolie Opens Afghanistan School for Girls

Angelina Jolie was adamant earlier when asked if she was married to Brad Pitt, the actress answered a paparazzo's question about her ring by saying the couple have not yet married.

It may be because of their busy schedules, the big-hearted actress Angelina has now opened a school in Afghanistan for girls.

The 37-year-old US beauty is as famous for her philanthropy as her acting skills and a report reveals she has funded the girls only educational establishment - which caters to between 200 and 300 students - just outside of Kabul and hopes it will be the first of many schools she sets up.

Angelina plans to fund more schools by selling her own self-designed accessories collection, the Style of Jolie, to retail stores for the first time with 100 per cent of the profits going to her new foundation, The Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.

She told E! News: ''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.''

The United Nations Goodwill Ambassador is renowned for her charity work and last year was left in tears after visiting a Syrian refugee camp where she delivered a speech portraying her ''concern'' at the situation there.

She said: ''I am very concerned, the world is very concerned. What is very heartbreaking is when Syrian people ask you why you think no one is able to find a solution for them.

''What they described on the ground, hearing it from them is so horrific. When you meet so many innocent people and civilians, the people of Syria are asking who is on their side, 'Who is going to help us as the months go on?'''
