Madonna's Matters in Malawi

Madonna's Matters in Malawi

Madonna plans to start building a multi-million-dollar girls’ school in Malawi for underprivileged children this year, her local lawyer said on Wednesday.

“A task force of four prominent Malawians has already been formed to head the project which will be on the scale of what Oprah Winfrey has in South Africa,” Madonna‘s lawyer Alan Chinula told Reuters.

Malawi’s High Court is expected to approve Madonna‘s bid to adopt two-year-old Malawian David Banda on Thursday.

Madonna will not attend the final court ruling on her adoption bid because she is busy with other engagements, Chinula said on Tuesday.

    Why is that they only build school for girls ?

    Like, there are no poor boys.

    I’m tired of those so-called feminists who think girls/women are the only victims of poverty. DOuble standards anyone ?

    Maybe there is already schools for boys where she intends to build it, and girl aren’t allowed to go to school. Who cares? She’s fake, but at least she will help these kids. And even if girls are not the only victims of poverty, their access to education isn’t as easy as for boys. We all know that!

  • samy

    She is such a FAKER. She announce this movie about Malawi at same time of her new album. Publicity. It is about time she uses the money that she raise from fancy dinner with the Cruises, Smith…in NY couple months ago.

    I was wondering where is the money from that benefit dinner.

    agree with all comments about Madonna being fake. Building a girl’s school in Africa wonder where she got that idea from?

    She is amazing. More rich people should do what she does instead of just talking on TV. She really wants to make the world a better place.


    woow…you people are so stupid!

    how can you criticized Madonna for helping poor little girls??

    at least she is doing something!!

    Go Madonna!!

  • julie

    You’d think this hearing would be her priority engagement.

  • eh

    I dont’ like her. she’s annoying.

  • jamie

    I guess career comes first and not adoption proceedings for her son! Everyone gave Britney a hard time when she didnt previously go to court for her boys earlier this year. I guess we know where her priorities lye. Copy cat much, adopt like Angelina and now build a girls school like Oprah, come up with your own ideas anything to try to stay relevant.

  • jillie

    What is more important than her son’s adoption?

  • ReadTheLetter

    She isnt needed for the hearing.. the Malawian Gov’t has given her the go a head to let her keep baby David. And I am glad she is using her name and $$ to help out the impoverished and sick youth of Africa

  • Laura

    Let’s get it right, it’s HER money, she spends it wherever she wants,
    I’m glad shes doing that, she has millions, and shes trying to help
    those kids to be something. Who cares if she spends her millions on shit, at least she uses some to help others, and you guys ? what do you guys do to help others ? f**** nothing. So, stop saying she’s fake.
