Madonna Returns to Malawi to Launch Girls Academy's Construction


Madonna


The 51-year-old pop superstar has headed to Malawi, the country where her two adopted kids come from, to launch the construction of her Raising Malawi Academy for Girls.

Madonna has flown to Malawi for a week of charity engagements in the African country. The pop superstar, who has adopted two children from the impoverished nation, has poured money into the region through her Raising Malawi Foundation and is scheduled to launch the construction of her girls school on Tuesday, April 6 by laying the first brick.

The $15 million Raising Malawi Academy for Girls is set to open in 2011. During her trip, the "Material Girl" will also visit a United Nations Millennium Village project, an initiative which builds communities in poverty-stricken areas.

Sharing about her visit, Madonna wrote on her Raising Malawi site, "It is with tremendous joy that I return to Malawi to lay the first brick in the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls. By educating girls we will rebuild this community and raise this nation." She added, "Our academy will educate, protect, and empower 450 young girls who are Malawi's hope for the future. We will stop the brain drain happening in so many African nations - our students will receive an internationally competitive education while incorporating local values."
