"I want to show you something. I came to a brickmaking site in Peru — it's almost like a scene from the Bible," Rodriguez says in the clip. "But what I would never have believed is who I found working there; children, tiny children."
The clip then follows the story of a little girl, Julianne, who is only 6 years old and does backbreaking labor every day.
"In the morning, she goes to school for a few hours, but then she spends the rest of the day in the blistering heat turning over bricks to dry," Rodriguez reveals.
While the Furious 7 actress's clip highlights the difficulties that so many families in Peru are facing, it also offers a small glimmer of hope. There is a project there that is working with families to help give their children the opportunity to stop working and concentrate on school.
As the actress reveals, it will "give them a hope of a happy life away from backbreaking labor.
"These kids don't belong here," Rodriguez says. "And to know that a couple of bucks can change that cycle... I think it's worth a shot."
