Madonna returns to Malawi to launch girls school
Madonna arrived in Malawi today to visit the girls school she is building in the impoverished country where she adopted two children, an official for the star’s charity said.
She was accompanied by her four children – Lourdes, 13, Rocco, 9, and the Malawian-born Mercy, 3, and David, 4.
The official said Madonna would take part in a groundbreaking ceremony for the school on Monday.
Madonna’s Raising Malawi, a charity founded in 2006 when she first visited the country, helps feed, educate and provide medical care for some of Malawi’s orphans.
Madonna will also meet with President Bingu wa Mutharika and visit some of the orphanages her charity supports.
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.
