US pop diva Madonna through her  Raising Malawi has promised to give  Malawi children a gift of education as on Sunday she  visited two of the 10 schools Raising Malawi funded with partner buildOn.

Those 10 schools are educating more than 5600 students, half of them girls. Madonna is considering additional education projects in Malawi, but has not yet announced plans to build additional schools in Kasungu.

Madonna was accompanied by her adopted Malawian children – Mercy James and David Banda along with son Rocco Ritchie to see her charitable efforts.

She told school children: “Education is the future. The biggest gift I can give you is education.”

The singer laughed and mingled with children, happily sitting on the dusty ground next to them as part of the crowd.

Raising Malawi is partnering with the non-governmental organisation buildOn to develop the schools. BuildOn director Maurice Muchene, thanked Madonna for partnering with his organisation on the project, saying schools are” a great source of pride and joy and stand testimony to the accomplishments that communities can attain when they work together.”

It was not clear whether the project will involve the Kabbalah Centre. Madonna has practised Kabbalah, a form of Jewish mysticism.

Kabbalah Centre is in no way involved with Raising Malawi.

Madonna has been visiting Malawi since 2006. She funds a number of orphanages and schools in the country.

On Thursday she helped open a new 50-bed pediatrics ward in the commercial capital, Blantyre, that she helped fund.

President Peter Mutharika hailed Madonna for her charity work in the poor southern African nation, saying “my government has always been grateful for the passion Madonna has for this country.”

Madonna lost favour with the previous government after cancelling the construction of a US$15 million (RM15.5 million) academy which was meant to offer 500 scholarships to girls from poor backgrounds.

The academy was mired in allegations of mismanagement and the project was replaced by plans to build schools in order to reach more children.

She withdrew her money after being suspicious of my embezzlement of funds from her initial project when she wanted to construct a girl’s school in Lumbadzi. I was then apointed PS number 4 at the Ministry of Education by my sister JB, of course that was out of my expertise not nepotism. But I told my sister that Madonna should nit step a foot again in Malawi. I and my colleagies at Raising Malawi unsuccessfully attempted to sue Madonna for firing us. Anways she can go ahead, its DPPs time andI wish her all the best. She has the last… Read more »
