Madonna Launches Construction Of Malawi School

Madonna Launches Construction Of Malawi School

Madonna launched the construction of a multi-million dollar girls’ school by planting a Moringa tree in a village north of Lilongwe, Malawi on Monday (October 26). The 51-year-old Queen of Pop was joined by her 13-year-old daughter Lourdes.

The Raising Malawi Academy for Girls – in Chinkhota village about 15 kilometers outside the capital Lilongwe – is expected to cost $15 million and be completed in two years. It will admit 500 girls from the small southern African country’s 28 districts. Madonna spoke to ABC News about the importance of an education and her reasons for going ahead with this multi-million dollar project:

Growing up in a privileged life, I took education for granted…but coming to Malawi has taught me a lot of things and (I have) learnt to appreciate what life gives,” Madonna said. “I realized how much they deserve to be educated and so for me the best thing I could do was to build a school, a unique school that will create future female leaders, scientists, lawyers, doctors and if this school is successful it will be used as a model to replicate it in other countries.”

Madonna adopted two of her children from Malawi: David, 4, and Mercy, 3

    Samantha Burke Introduces Baby Sophia

    Samantha Burke Introduces Baby Sophia

    Update: Samantha Burke released the following statement to Celebrity Baby Scoop regarding any compensation she received for the above photoshoot:

    I can confirm that after months of constant requests from the media, I decided to share pictures of myself and Sophia with Hello! Magazine. Both Sophia and I were compensated for the photographs, and will donate a portion of the compensation to the Ronald McDonald House to assist with the completion of their new facility in Pensacola, FL. The majority of the compensation, paid to Sophia, will be placed in trust for her secondary education and well-being. I’m thrilled with the pictures of Sophia and pleased to announce that she is healthy, happy and deeply loved.

    Meet Jude Law’s fourth child! Samantha Burke introduces baby Sophia Lee in the new edition of Hello! magazine. The 25-year-old new mom posed in her Florida home with the adorable 5-week-old daughter of Jude Law. The aspiring actress, who reportedly earned £185,000 for the photoshoot, says that Jude has yet to meet their daughter, although she is sure he’ll “fall in love” with the tot once his busy schedule clears up a bit.

    On her hopes for a relationship between Jude and Sophia: “I hope for him to be just as good as he is to his three children by Sadie Frost. He’s a great father to his three kids. She’s his daughter and I believe he’ll come through. I mean once you see her face, how can you deny it?”

    On how Jude will fall in love with Sophia when they meet: “She’s already got such a great personality. I think he’ll fall in love with her when he sees her.”

    On who Sophia looks like: “Her features are more like Jude’s. She has his chin and nose, and she does a little pout that I notice that he’s done before. I think her eyes are more like mine, though. You can’t always tell when they’re so young but they don’t have that big, glassy look that his do – mine are a little smaller and more like hers.”

    On when Jude is coming to meet Sophia: “There are no plans for it to happen at the moment, but I know he’s busy.”

    On if she has received any gifts for baby Sophia from Jude: “No nothing.”

    On being called a gold-digger: “It really hurt. I have never dated a guy for money. All my ex-boyfriends were just normal guys.”

    Matt Damon & His Gorgeous Girls

    Gorgeous girls! Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso were spotted with their two daughters – Isabella, 3, and Gia, 14 months – along with Luciana’s 11-year-old daughter Alexia walking to the set of Matt’s latest film, The Adjustment Bureau in New York City on Sunday (October 25).

    The 39-year-old Bourne Ultimatum hunk recently talked about setting a good example for his children.

    I try to keep my trips short because my kids are so young that my wife, Lucy, can’t come. We don’t like to be separated, but we both feel it’s so important to learn about these things. In the future, I know these trips are something we’ll do as a family…. I can’t think of any more important value to instill in our children than the desire to help others. I feel strongly about setting an example for them.”
