Johansson Donates Money To Sri Lankan School

Published on October 18, 2007 with No Comments

Scarlett JohanssonActress Scarlett Johansson has donated “a large sum” to a poverty-stricken school in Sri Lanka after the children there left her overcome with emotion during a recent visit.

The 22-year-old travelled to Sri Lanka and India with aid workers from international charity group Oxfam – and admits the highlight was the time she spent with kids at a Dalit school.

Johansson tells “The most gratifying opportunity was visiting a Dalit school. The Dalit community is considered the lowest status in the caste system, and children as young as four are working the fields.”

The actress’ hand-out will financially support the school for the next three years.

Meanwhile, the Lost In Translation star is currently planning a trip to US Army bases overseas with the United Service Organisation.

Her publicist says: “It will be in early 2008 and for about a week. I can’t give out more than that for security reasons.”
