The world knows Demi Lovato as an incredible singer, a Disney star, and an unapologetic spokesperson for mental illness and body positivity

But the 24-year-old Latina is also a humanitarian, even though she might not shout it from the rooftops. 

For instance, if you follow her on social media, you know Lovato is traveling right now.

She's also been sharing her trip on Snapchat

But what you don't know is that those adorable elephant shots aren't from just another glamorous vacay.

Photographer Ryan Bolton is in Kenya with Lovato and shared the reason for the trip.

He wrote on Instagram,

"So, the reason I'm in Kenya is to capture moments with Demi Lovato. Surprise! Demi has been working tirelessly to empower mamas in Kenya by selling rafiki necklaces that are made by the mamas on her world tour. Here's a tender moment of the mamas thanking Demi for everything she's done. I can't wait to share more with you and @wemovement."

The WE Charity is a global movement that helps empower communities in need.

For Africa, specifically, WE implements a five-pillar development model that focuses on education, water, health, food, and opportunity.

This isn't the first time Lovato has traveled to Africa to help out with the WE Charity.

For her 21st birthday in 2013, Lovato was a Free the Children ambassador and spent her time volunteering in the Masaai Mara in Kenya. The videos from her inspirational trip will make you cry all the happy tears.

But she's going far beyond necklaces. Lovato is helping build houses, too.

In a Snapchat video, you can see Lovato pushing a wheelbarrow as someone off camera says, "Out here building houses."

Charity work is beautiful no matter how you do it, but Lovato's quiet dedication makes us love her all the more.

She's taking the time and putting in the work without asking for a pat on the back.  

Keep making the world a better place, Demi!
