Nelly Furtado Goes Silent for Free the Children

After a successful European tour, Nelly Furtado will take a Vow of Silence on April 21st as part of Free The Children’s We Are Silent campaign. Launched in 2004, the campaign challenges its participants to stand in silence for 24 hours in solidarity of children whose basic human rights are denied.

We are Silent is one of Free The Children’s most powerful campaigns. Every year, tens of thousands of participants stand up for children who are being silenced by the denial of their basic human rights, collecting pledges as they take a vow of silence. All over the world, young people will go silent for 24 hours to raise awareness and funds for children without a voice.
