"My original vision is now on a much bigger scale. I want to reach thousands not hundreds of girls. I want to do more and I want to do it better," the Daily Express Madonna as saying in a statement. "I remain deeply committed and am more passionate than ever about helping the children of Malawi-especially the girls. In a country where only 33 per cent of Malawian girls attend secondary school, I realise that the plans we had in place for the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls simply would not serve enough children," she said.
The singer has revealed her plans to build even more schools, and vows to continue with her involvement. She added: "This is a larger challenge than I thought, but I welcome it. We are focused on an approach, which builds schools within communities across the country.
"We are currently determining the size, location, staffing and curriculum of the schools. I will continue to monitor the process of reaching these goals here and through my ongoing visits to Malawi."
