Nowadays it seems that everyone is pulling their money together and opening up a school in some other country. Oprah Winfrey, of course, started the trend with her Henley-On-Klip Leadership Academy in South Africa in 2006, and Ecorazzi told you how Ricki Lake was helping her nanny build a school. Well now the material girl herself has announced plans to open an all-girls school of her own in Malawi.
Madonna recently told Elle magazine: “I’m buying land and getting permission to build a girl’s school. The women will play a big role in the future and rebirth of Malawi.” Why Malawi? Madonna adopted her son David from the country in 2006 and has been quoted saying : “People always ask me why I chose Malawi. And I tell them, I didn’t. It chose me.”
Stay posted Ecorazzi readers! I’m sure there will be many more juicy details as this story unfolds. I hope Madonna is making this school green!
