Madonna Lied About Building Schools In Malawi
A new controversy surrounding Madonna’s latest education project in the country which is the native home of two of her adopted children, raises many questions after Malawi education authorities on Thursday challenged a claim by Madonna’s organization, that her charity last year built 10 new schools in the poor southern African nation.
Education Minister Eunice Kazembe said…
“The schools Raising Malawi claims to have constructed were already in existence. Raising Malawi only built 10 classroom blocks and not schools. People should know the difference between the two.”
In December Madonna’s charity in tandem with global non-profit buildOn, announced the completion of 10 schools, claiming they would provide education to 4,871 children.
Madonna said in a statement issued at the time…
“I am overjoyed that my commitment along with buildOn’s to help educate the children of Malawi has come to fruition.”
Malawi’s education minister said the country wanted to “clarify any misconceptions that may arise.”
Raising Malawi released a full report (PDF) on the BuildOn school project.

They only say this because I am a strong, sexually liberated woman in pop music.

She's not sorry. It's human nature.

She's always been a cheapskate, the gay dancers in Truth Or Dare were ripped off too. They were barely paid anything even though they were heavily featured in pretty much her only successful and good movie.

They should take a holiday, some time to celebrate. It would be so nice.

They shouldn't settle for second best. They should put her love to the test.
Long stem roses are the way to their heart, but she needs to start with their heads.
I'm not surprised by this report.

Why is she so cheap? I'm sure she could use the tax write-off.
Didn't she buy her little black daughter, Mercy?

I always did think there was something shady about this whole "building schools in Malawai" stuff. She's got half a billion dollars in the bank and she's so fucking greedy she refuses to donate any of her own money to get these schools built.
Nothing but an old whore pig.

Wasn't building these schools the "apology" to Malawi for the whole Kaballah scandal? I'm a bit fuzzy, but she supposed to help build schools through some Kaballah organization, but it turned out the organization was keeping the money for itself and sending none overseas.

She's been under investigation by the government over this stupid Kabbalah charity for years now. I'm surprised she's not in jail yet.

It's going to be sad when David & Mercy realize they were adopted for publicity, like the "Why did you adopt me?" scene in Mommie Dearest.

Christina Crawford just trashed her saying that she got these kids for the PR.
You just know that one of Madonna's four kids is going to write a tell-all book.
