Nicki Minaj is earning quite the reputation but this time it is not for her derriere or her music.

The rapper recently revealed she has been donating money towards the improvement of a small village in India. The 34-year-old celebrated the latest developments in an Instagram post on 21 May.

"This is the kind of thing that makes me feel the most proud," she wrote alongside a video of the villagers showing off their newest manual water pump. "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 2 WATER WELLS."

"We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl don't even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done. I'll tell you guys more about my charity work in the near future in case you'd like to be a part of it. Love."

Minaj also posted a photo of a group of women at what looks to be the village's new tailoring centre with its two sewing machines.

"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," the Bang Bang artist wrote.

This is not the singer's only charitable action. Earlier this month, Minaj shared her fortune with other people in need when she helped financially stressed students pay off their education loans. She also purchased books for those planning to start their new semesters soon.

"Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious," she wrote on Twitter following which she spent approximately $20,000 (£15,408) paying of people's tuition. Following the powerful response to her offer, the High School singer now plans to repeat the donations in a couple of months.
