Nelly Furtado Helps Girls Get An Education In Kenya

We love to see celebrities giving back to the world which has given them so much!
Pop star Nelly Furtado recently joined a non-profit volunteer arts organization, Artbound, on their first assignment to build Free The Children’s first all girls secondary school in the Maasai Mara region of Kenya.

High tuition costs in the region mean that less than 5% of girls will be able to attend high school and only 1 girl a year moves on to a college education

"It was just extraordinary to be in Kenya and to meet all the people and to share music and celebrate art. I’m completely changed and really excited about the future. It’s made me want to try harder as a woman, as a person, as a mother and as a citizen of the world.”
