My family and I are on our way to Malawi to attend the ground breaking ceremony for Raising Malawi Academy for Girls.
The ceremony will take place on Monday, October 26 at 3:00 p.m. on the future site of the Academy.Our vision for the school is to empower girls to become Malawi's future leaders. Our goal is to teach them to challenge themselves, serve their local communities and develop their country.
We created this vision in partnership with the local Malawian Ministry of Education, and other educational experts from Malawi, Sub-Sharan African and elsewhere around the world. We are developing and using innovative educational approaches, cutting-edge architectural design methods, and other modern technologies, which we hope, will become a replicable model for girls secondary school education.Research proves that young girls throughout the developing world are often left without opportunities to receive a comprehensive education and the benefits that education can provide.
It’s an honor for me to be able to help as many of these girls as I can achieve their dreams.I’m also incredibly proud of all the projects Raising Malawi is involved in and I look forward to visiting a number of them during my visit.

hey Madonna! congrats on the ground breaking for the girls school in malawi! You're awesome for starting this endeavor. I know you won't but don't forget to educate them in the music (band/orchestra instruments, voice, music theory, ear training, etc. ) In difficult times, music can be a helpful source of strength. It is for me (i just pick up my flute, horn, or the the other myriad of other instruments i play or have to practice and my troubles seem to vanish shortly after. So, don't forget MUSIC!
