Madonna Breaks Ground On Malawi School
Madonna arrived in Malawi today to visit the girls’ school she is building in the country where she adopted two children, an official for the star’s charity said.
MSN is sourcing an “official who could not be named because he was not authorized to speak on the matter.”
The 51-year-old celebrity was joined by her four kids including the Malawian-born Mercy, 3, and David, 4.
The official said Madonna would take part in a groundbreaking ceremony for the school on Monday and will meet with President Bingu wa Mutharika and visit some of the orphanages her charity supports.
Madonna founded Raising Malawi in 2006, a charity that helps to feed, educate and provide medical care for some of Malawi’s orphans.
According to MSN, “The school she is building for poor girls is on the outskirts of the capital and is similar to the one built by talk show host Oprah Winfrey in South Africa.”
