Breaking Ground on Madonna’s 4th School in Malawi

Today we broke ground on the Swaswa school, the fourth school built in partnership with Madonna’s organization, Raising Malawi!

buildOn students from Detroit and Philadelphia are in Malawi working side-by-side with villagers to construct the new school for the community of Chitota. Chitota has nearly 150 boys and girls that should be in primary school. Unfortunately, the nearest school is eight kilometers away and students must cross a river, without a bridge, just to get there. The 50 children who brave this dangerous journey each day face several obstacles, including drowning during the rainy season.  Once the Swaswa school is completed, the children in Chitota will no longer have to risk their lives for education.
