LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- According to country music Web site TheBoot.com, the couple will help fund a school in the disaster-ravaged country.
“We’re actually going to be funding a school down there for the next five years,” Keith told radio station CatCountry 96 in Bethlehem, Penn.
In addition to an education, the school will reportedly provide basic health needs to the children.
“It’s in Port-Au-Prince. The kids will also have one hot meal a day. They’ll have all of their medical taken care of by the school, and clothing, as well,” the country star continued.
The couple is reportedly joining forces with Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis and the Artists for Peace and Justice organization to spearhead the project.
In January, Nicole and Keith took part in the Hope for Haiti Now telethon.
