It looks like that Madonna's Malawi school, which was planned to be built by her charity, has unfortunately been scrapped as a feasible idea for now.
After a reported $3.8 million dollars went into the plan, the production has been ceased due to issues with the charity itself.
The board of directors has been replaced, because the last executive director (Phillippe van de Bossche) had allegedly had his hands in the funds, using them for personal shizz like a car, driver, and gold club membership.
What a terrible thing to do! It's a charity! So sad.
The singer had these things to say in regards to everything:
"There's a real education crisis in Malawi. Sixty-seven percent of girls don't go to secondary school, and this is simply unacceptable. Our team is going to work hard to address this in every way we can. While I'm proud of [other] accomplishments, I'm frustrated that our education work has not moved forward in a faster way."
Stay positive, Madonna! With some extra work, we're sure things can turn out for the better!
This is just a little set back for someone like you, who tends to get things done no matter what!
Good luck, and we hope to see the school plans up and running again soon!
