The Material Girl is doing some material good.
Madonna is planning to establish a new school for girls in the impoverished African nation of Malawi, Reuters reports.
“It is a multi-million-dollar project,” her attorney, Alan Chinula, told the wire service. “We will get the real costs in the next two weeks.”
The lawyer added that a “task force” of four well-known Malawians has already been tapped to oversee the project. It will be “on the scale of what Oprah Winfrey has in South Africa.”
But before Madonna breaks ground on her new project, the singer – who recently produced a documentary about HIV/AIDS orphans in Malawi – has some personal business in the small African nation.
Chinula told Reuters it is unlikely Madonna will actually attend the hearing, due to scheduling conflicts.
