Madonna Plans Girls School in Malawi
Madonna is spearheading a movement to have a girls school built in Malawi, the African country from which she adopted her son David Banda last year. According to her lawyer, "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." The Material Girl's plan to build a girls school comes on the eve of an announcement in which Madonna is expected to be given full custody of Banda, a move that follows a tumultuous eighteen months since Madonna's highly-criticized adoption. Her lawyer also stated that he expected funding for the multi-million dollar project to be confirmed within the next two weeks.
