NPTtv Summary: Madonna Sued By Charity's Former Employees

Maonna lives in a material world, and now it seems like some people want some of her material.  The Pop star is being sued in by 8 people her charity, Raising Malawi, used to employ. The organization had planned to build a $15 million Academy for Girls in the country, but plans started to fall apart in the past year.  As expected, a lot of money was lost because of the failed plans, and employees had to be let go as a result.  And that brings us to the law suit the Queen of Pop is currently enduring.
According to the co-founder of the charity, little progress had been made on the project. In fact, no ground had even been broken, even after millions of dollars had been poured into it. The school was to be an important project for Madonna, as she had famously adopted two girls from Malawi, who were among millions of orphaned girls in the country. Malwi has a serious education problem, with 67% of girls there not attending secondary school, so the school would have probably been a huge boon to the population there.
