Canadian pop star Justin Bieber learned the power of charity on a recent trip to Latin America. 

After performing in Guatemala City, Biebs made a stop in an impoverished village in the jungle to help build a school for underprivileged children with the nonprofit Pencils of Promise. The organization has built more than 100 schools since 2008. 

According to TMZ, Selena Gomez’s ex-boyfriend rode a chopper to the remote village and joined a makeshift construction crew. He immediately stripped off his shirt and got to work.

The Recovery singer Tweeted about the experience: “Today was 1 of the most powerful and humbling days of my life. Thank u Guatemala & @PencilsofPromise. Today I saw real happiness. So powerful.”
