Mumbai: Rapper Nicki Minaj has been sending money to an impoverished village in India for the last couple of years, to provide its locals access to clean water, basic education and technology.

Taking to Instagram, the 34-year-old singer shared a video in which an Indian man was seen showing a newly installed hand pump in the village.

"This is the kind of thing that makes me feel the most proud. The money I've sent to this village in India for the last couple years (via my Pastor Lydia Sloley), has gotten them a computer center, a tailoring institute, a reading program and two water wells."

"We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some (people) don't even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done," Minaj captioned the video.

Minaj said she would be dropping more details about her charity work in the near future, in case fans want to get involved.

The 'Anaconda' hitmaker also posted a picture of a few Indian women sitting on a floor in saris and suits, while her picture was shown on screen.

"I'm so proud of our sisters in India. God is so good. Their desire was to have water wells and places where they can worship, places where they can learn technology, computers, reading, etc. We're just getting started. These women are us and we are them," she captioned the photo.
