Madonna helped kick off the start of construction herself in October with a ribbon cutting ceremony, where she also planted a Moringa tree, which is known as the “miracle tree” for its many cures for diseases. Also on hand was President Bingu wa Mutharika and hundreds of children from nearby orphanages that Madonna also supports. The school is set to be completed in 2012.
