Beyoncé and her foundation BeyGOOD announced a new initiative at the Essence Festival in New Orleans on Friday morning.

The pop has leveraged on her superstar power in a new philanthropic effort to bring safe, clean water to children in Burundi in a partnership with UNICEF, the United Nations’ children’s agency.

The artist’s organization is teaming with UNICEF to help raise money to help bring more clean water to citizens of Burundi. There are also two limited edition shirts for sale, the sales of which will benefit UNICEF’s support of Burundi.

The  BEYGOOD4BURUNDI project plans to help build wells and improve hygiene education and water and sanitation facilities in schools, UNICEF and the U.S. star said in online statements.

Two in five people in Burundi in East Africa have no access to clean water, and water- and sanitation-related diseases are among the leading causes of death among children in the nation of 12 million people, they said.

“Access to water is a fundamental right. When you give children clean and safe water, you don’t just give them life, you give them health, an education, and a brighter future,” Beyonce, 35, said in the statement.
