Kim Kardashian is currently in Africa on a charity mission.

“We’re [in] Africa for Russell Simmons' Diamond Empowerment Fund," blogged the star. “DEF is a non-profit organization that aims to empower disadvantaged people in African nations where diamonds are a natural resource, through education. Some people online have been judging me for my charity work with the DEF. No charity work should ever be judged, it’s just wrong. We can all do something to help!”

Kardashian is being accompanied by boyfriend Reggie Bush and her sister Khloe.

“We are on our way 2 the Jwangeng diamond mine,” twittered Kardashian. “Did u know 75% of Botswana’s economy is supported by diamonds! How Botswana manages their diamonds is the best example of how diamonds help their country!”

Kardashian is now in South Africa and will tweet and blog about her experiences.
