Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are to fund a school in Haiti.

The Oscar-winning actress and the country singer - who have a 19-month-old daughter Sunday Rose - are keen to help the earthquake-stricken nation by giving money to an education facility.

Urban said: "We're actually going to be funding a school down there for the next 5 years."

As well as providing an education, the school will also help provide the children with basic medical needs.

Urban added to radio station CatCountry 96: "It's in Port-Au-Prince. The kids will also have one hot meal a day. They'll have all of their medical taken care of by the school, and clothing, as well."

The couple will be working with Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis and the Artists for Peace and Justice organization on the project.

Kidman and Urban are not the first stars to help Haiti, which was hit by 2 devastating earthquakes last month.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Aniston and George Clooney have all donated vast sums of money, as have John Mayer and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
