You go Mag!
Madonna announced that her Raising Malawi charity is finally about to star construction on their first school school.
After 6 years of raising money for the charity, the diva says the plan is to break ground on at the end of March and finish building all ten schools by 2013! (And what are you doing for impoverished children in the next 2 years?)
“This remains a very big priority in my life and I am excited that with the help of buildOn we can maintain our ongoing commitment to move forward efficiently. I have learned a great deal over the last few years and feel so much more confident that we can reach out goals to educate children in Malawi, especially young girls, in a much more efficient and practical way.”
Each school is gonna cost about $300,000 build. They’ll serve about 1,000 boys and girls in the southern African nation.
Madonna wants the schools to be run by the local community - NOT her organization or Malawi's government.
