Nicole Scherzinger has shared her experiences of her visit to the city of Manila in the Philippines for Unicef.
The former Pussycat Doll spent a day with Unicef meeting children living in dangerous, overcrowded communities around the capital, many of whom are struggling against poverty, hunger, disease and the risk of violence.
"I’m part Filipina so I have a strong connection with the country and feel I have a responsibility to do what I can and bring awareness to the dangers that Filipino children face every day," said Nicole.
"Simple things like going to school and learning about their rights is so important, not only in terms of changing their lives but it also keeps them safe and off the streets.
It’s amazing to see how Unicef and their partners are trying to do more to protect children in danger," she continued.
During her visit the X Factor judge met young children from the village and took part in singing and dancing activities based around learning about their rights and keeping them off the streets.
