Madonna hopes Malawi school will end ‘brain drain in Africa’

Posted on: April 7, 2010

Queen of Pop Madonna has stated in a blog on the Raising Malawi website that she hopes her new Malawi girls school will put an end to the ‘brain drain happening in Africa’.

Madonna, 51, who is currently in Malawi to launch the construction of the academy on April 6, wants to educate pupils so that they can help rebuild the nation.

And she admits she has high hopes for the 10 million pounds Raising Malawi Academy for Girls, scheduled to open its doors to 450 students next year.

“It is with tremendous joy that I return to Malawi to lay the first brick in the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls. By educating girls, we will rebuild this community and raise this nation,” the Daily Star quoted her as writing.

“We will stop the brain drain happening in so many African nations – our students will receive an internationally competitive education while incorporating local values…

“Having seen the determination in the eyes of these children, I know they have the strength to save Malawi – they just need to be given the tools…

“Once instilled with pride in their homeland, young women will understand the importance of remaining in Malawi and investing in their own communities.

“It is with hope for a bright future that I am here… The brick I will lay is not just the bedrock to a school – it is the foundation for our shared future,” she added.
