“Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me, I think they’re okay / if they mismanage my $11 million dollars, I just walk away”

Is that how it went?

Although Madonna has donated over 11 million dollars for funding, the singer has reportedly dismissed The Raising Malawi board of directors due to financial mismanagement. Says the artist, “sixty-seven per cent 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.”

One founder of the organization, Trevor Neilson, advised the star that the funds would be much more effective if put towards already existing educational programs created by nongovernmental organizations.

He has also said that out of the total money donated, 3.8 million has already been spent on “architects, design, salaries and, in one case, two cars for employees who had not even been hired yet.”

Madonna is now working with her manager to continue the fight to educate girls in Malawi, the same country her two children, David and Mercy, are from. The Raising Malawi foundation itself continues to receive donations, raising $18 million so far.
