Ten schools funded by Madonna in Malawi are slated to open in 2013.
Madge adopted two children, David and Mercy, from the region. In 2006, she founded Raising Malawi to provide aid to the African nation's growing population of orphans.
Builders have completed the facilities for 10 primary schools which will serve over 4,000 children. It's a New Year's miracle.
The Material Girl said, "I am overjoyed that my commitment along with buildOn's to help educate the children of Malawi has come to fruition. In a country where girls have little opportunity for education, it's additionally inspiring to know that more than half the students attending will be young girls. The fact that more than 4,800 children in Malawi will get to go to school next year is a tremendous step forward for their individual growth and the growth of Malawi."
