MTV: Music Television will air The Diary of Angelina Jolie & Dr. Jeffrey Sachs in Africa Sept. 14, AP reported.

The network will follow the actress and the United Nations adviser and economist to a remote group of villages in western Kenya, where Sachs' U.N. Millennium Project team is working to end poverty, hunger and disease, according to AP.

“I'm certain the stories in this special will inspire viewers the same way these experiences have inspired me, and I'm hopeful that increased awareness of the issues in Africa will bring about a new wave of progress and activism among young people everywhere,” Jolie -- who recently adopted her daughter, Zahara Marley, from Ethiopia -- said in a prepared statement.
