The festivities were to celebrate the construction of the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls, a $15 million institution funded by the philanthropic pop star that is slated to open next year.

“The brick I will lay is not just the bedrock to a school,” Madonna said, according to CNN. “It is the foundation for our shared future.”

The Vogue singer brought all four of her kids — her biological children, Lourdes and Rocco, and her adopted kids Mercy and David Banda (both native Malawians) on the trip, which will last the remainder of the week.
