Madonna Channels Oprah, Builds Academy For Girls In Malawi (PHOTOS)

Madonna is certainly a charitable star and she isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty for some of her favorite causes.

Madge was on hand in Malawi on Monday to lay down the first bricks for the Raising Malawi Academy For Girls. Madonna helped create the Raising Malawi charity to help support the country’s many orphans. The Academy For Girls is slated to open next year.

Madonna has adopted two children from Malwai, David and Mercy James. She brought all four of her children–including David and Mercy James–with her to Malawi.
