Madonna pledges to build 4 new schools in Africa in 2018 with her Raising Malawi charity

Madonna is getting “Into the Groove” of 2018 — with some charity work!

On Thursday, the pop icon announced that her philanthropic foundation, Raising Malawi, will build four new schools in the southeast African country, where the organization has already built 10 schools.

“Let’s start 2018 off right!” Madonna, 59, captioned an Instagram post. “I’m challenging you all to stand up, come together and BE the CHANGE you want to SEE in the World!! This year we’ll begin by building 4 brand new schools in the Kasungu District of #Malawi with @RaisingMalawi and @buildOn!! That’s 14 schools in total that will help thousands of kids get the education they so rightfully deserve!”

Madonna has a long history with the nation, as she adopted four of her six children from Malawi: David Banda, 12, Mercy James, 11, and 6-year-old twins Stella and Estere, whom she brought home last February. (The Grammy winner is also mom to Lourdes Leon, 21, and Rocco Ritchie, 17.)

The “Living for Love” singer’s relationship with the African country began in 2006, when she launched Raising Malawi. And this summer, all of Madonna’s efforts culminated in the charity’s biggest undertaking yet. In July, the pop star asked PEOPLE to join her and her family in Malawi for the opening of the Mercy James Centre for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, the first children’s hospital in the nation.

CBS Sunday Morning interview: Madonna's song of hope for Malawi's children

In the world of entertainment, only a few stars are big enough to be known far and wide by just a single name. And it turns out that one of the biggest of those one-name stars has a whole second calling ... a mission of hope and healing in a place that badly needs it. Tracy Smith reports our Cover Story:

Malawi, a landlocked African nation of 17 million, is about the size of Pennsylvania, and one of the poorest countries on Earth. Disease is rampant here -- and pediatric health care is almost unheard of. But this past July, Malawi's children got some help.

To you and me, she's Madonna. But to people in the city of Blantyre, she's the lady behind the new hospital, and she was there for opening day, along with Mercy, Esther, Stella and David, four of her six children (and all from Malawi).

It was the first time she'd seen the finished building. "Oh my gosh, what a beautiful hospital!" said Madonna. "It's the brightest, most cheerful hospital entrance I've ever seen."

The Mercy James Pediatric Surgery Center (named for her adopted daughter) has new operating rooms and a children's ICU.

The surprising beauty product that Madonna keeps in her freezer - and her other current obsessions

In all my years as a beauty journalist, I’ve interviewed probably hundreds of chemists about molecules and the general function of skin, but I can count the celebrities on one hand. So when my editor asked if I wanted to interview Madonna, tied to the U.S. début of her MDNA skin-care line, it was a no-brainer. Not surprisingly, the seven-product collection, created with Japanese beauty company MTG, is made of the chicest ingredients, including mineral waters and volcanic-ash clay from Montecatini Terme, Italy, as well as hyaluronic acids. Over the course of our conversation, she shared a few other must-haves.

JL: Why did you want to create a skin-care line?

Madonna: I wanted to create something that just works for me so I didn’t have to grab one product from one line, one from another, then find out something got discontinued. But my desire evolved from being a performer onstage, traveling all the time, being under hot lights, sweating, and feeling exhausted. I wanted a line that constantly rehydrates and also preps my skin to take on all those challenges.

JL: Did you like working on the formulations?

M: The whole process has been really enjoyable. MTG is a great partner, they have high expectations, and their knowledge of technology is amazing. So, for me, it’s a beautiful marriage.

Madonna and twin girls accept damages over Mail Online article

Website revealed names, ages and other information about girls before star adopted them, causing ‘considerable distress’.

Madonna and her twin daughters, Stella and Estere, have accepted undisclosed damages from Associated Newspapers over a “serious invasion of privacy”.

Madonna, who adopted the four-year-olds in February, brought the case at London’s high court over a January 2017 article which caused her “considerable personal distress and anxiety”, her solicitor Jenny Afia told Mrs Justice Davies on Thursday.

It revealed the girls’ names, race, age, and that they lived in an orphanage in Malawi and were the subject of pending applications for adoption by Madonna.

Afia said: “The Mail Online published it at a time when, as the journalist ought to have appreciated, Madonna would be powerless to protect the girls from harm.

“Their actions could, in her view, have threatened the integrity and/or outcome of the adoption process which would have had potentially life-changing implications for the girls, as well as for Madonna and her family.”

Afia said Associated had made a settlement offer involving the payment of damages and costs, and Madonna would donate the damages to the Mercy James Institute for Paediatric Surgery in Malawi.

“She is pleased that at least some good can come out of the situation.”

Afia said the 58-year-old star, who was not in court, felt she had no option but to take action over what she regarded as a serious invasion of privacy.
