Nelly Furtado is a JUNO and Grammy® Award-winning singer-songwriter who recently released her fifth album, The Spirit Indestructible. She is also a Free The Children ambassador. Having travelled to Kenya and seen first-hand the life-changing effect that education has on girls in developing communities, Nelly launched a matching fund to support the construction of a new all girls high school in Kenya, called Oleleshwa. As a result, hundreds of students in Kenya will benefit from an education.
