Madonna's Malawi Efforts Are in Vogue

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you may have noticed that Madonna is making something of a comeback (not that she ever left, heaven forbid!). With a kickin' new album, a self-produced film at Cannes, and the upcoming Sticky & Sweet Tour whose monster ticket sales crashed Internet servers in North America and Europe, Madge has quite a lot on her plate these days.

But not so much that she's neglected her promise to Malawi. According to Starpulse, Madonna is building a multi-million-dollar school for girls in the East African nation.

Unlike celebs who preach environmental and social causes and then fly carbon-emitting private jets (I'm talking to you, Mr. Travolta), Madonna is actually putting her money where it would do the most good, into Malawi's future.

Kudos!
