Madonna Announces Completion Of 10 Schools With buildOn

Ten primary schools have been completed as part of Madonna's ongoing commitment to support orphans and vulnerable children in poverty stricken Malawi, it has been announced today.
The new schools are located in rural villages and will serve to educate 4,871 children.They are a result of the partnership between Madonna, her charity Raising Malawi and the global nonprofit buildOn. The ten schools, which were scheduled to be built over 18 months, have been completed six months ahead of schedule. Six of the schools are already in use and all ten will be up and running in January 2013 for the first day of school in the New Year. The project was originally announced early this year as a major initiative of Raising Malawi, which has already provided millions of dollars in support of orphanages, a network of orphan care service providers, health clinics, a scholarship program for girls, and the schools with buildOn.
The location for each school was chosen from a list of communities in need of new infrastructure. The Ministry of Education Office in the Kasungu District was an important partner, providing both the teachers and curriculum after each school was completed.
"Madonna's commitment to the children of Malawi is inspiring," said Jim Ziolkowski , founder and CEO of buildOn. "Through Raising Malawi's support we were able to build 10 schools that will educate literally generations of children who need it the most."
