Through her personal foundation Pies Descalzos, Shakira is raising funds for the Building Together project. The initiative is to build a school in her homeland of Colombia. The school, set to open next year, will have an open door policy in which kids, parents and the community can participate in different educational activities. Shakira’s work has not gone unnoticed, she’s been nominated as an honoree for VH1’s philanthropic Do Something Awards. The awards honor young people’s commitment to social change.
