Washington, Nov 14 (ANI): Popstar Madonna has taken a break from her Sticky & Sweet world tour in order to urge her fans to support her in building an all-girl school in Malawi.

The 4 Minute hitmaker has filmed a brief video message about the Raising Malawi Academy for girls and posted it on her website for the noble cause.

“After witnessing the potential of Malawi’’s girls firsthand, I made it my mission to give them an opportunity to become their personal best, Contactmusic quoted Madonna, as stating in her message.

Madonna shot a video in her hotel room to record her appeal to all to help the Malawi girls excel in life by funding for their school.

“There are very few girls in Africa in general who are encouraged or allowed to go to secondary schools so, after spending a lot of time there, I realized that one of the ways I could help was to build a girls school, Madonna said.

“I would really be grateful if you would get involved and help me in any way you can with donations, spreading the word, visiting my website, reading about the progress we”ve made so far. Please visit our website. I would appreciate any help you could give us, she added.

Madonna has been a regular visitor to Malawi, and has adopted son David from an orphanage in the country. (ANI)
