In a video message on the site, Madonna asks fans to contribute to help build the school.

"After witnessing the potential of Malawi's girls firsthand, I made it my mission to give them an opportunity to become their personal best. I hope you will share my urgency and make a donation today. Every donation counts toward helping impoverished girls to reach their full potential. And every dollar will make a difference," Madonna writes.

Madonna's adopted son David was born in Malawi and the pop superstar has made several visits to the African nation.
