Rihanna and Julia Gillard in Malawi

Rihanna and Julia Gillard continue to prove that girl power rules, with the two reuniting in Malawi recently to continue their charity work with the Global Partnership for Education. Watch the video below.

A newly released video of RiRi and Julia's visit shows them meeting with young locals in the African country in January, teaching them many things, from maths to making melodies.

This is a reunion of sorts for Rihanna and Gillard, who first met in September last year when Rihanna's Clara Lionel Foundation announced its multi-year partnership with the Global Partnership for Education, which Gillard is the Chair of.

The pair seek "to advocate for strong education systems that ensure the world's poorest kids can get a quality education" and aim to raise $3.1 billion between 2018 and 2020.

Footage shows Rihanna writing away on a chalkboard as she teaches children how to count through song, before former Australian Prime Minister Gillard speaks with community leaders during a forum.

The experience certainly struck a chord with Rihanna, with the award-winning singer keen to encourage locals to get the education they deserve.

"It's such a pity they have to drop out because they are so smart and everybody is learning together and learning at the same pace it seems," she is seen telling community members and politicians, before adding, "It's sad that, that has to end for some of them because they could probably do so much if they had the resources to continue and complete".

The joy Rihanna and Gillard's visit put on the local children's faces in the video is absolutely heartwarming. Aww.
