Singer Madonna has revealed her plans to open an orphanage in Malawi.

Madonna, 52, revealed the news in her interview in ‘American Revolutionaries: The Hitmakers,’ a docu-series which focuses on some of pop music’s most influential artists.

Madonna said, “My short term goals are to build an orphan care center that will service and reach at least 1,000 children and I’m also actively involved in funding several orphanages that already exist.”

She previously created a charity and tried to build a $15 million school in Malawi, to educate approximately 400 girls, but unfortunately the plans collapsed in March.

Madonna has a special bond with Malawi. She adopted her son, David, and her daughter, Mercy, from an orphanage in the impoverished African nation.

Madonna’s orphanage plans have been made public just days after it was announced her life will be the subject of a new comic book.

Madonna will soon find herself in a whole new material world: the pages of a comic book.

She is the latest celebrity to be part of a line of “Female Force” comics. Her life story will be told in 32 pages.

The one-shot issue, due out in August for $3.99, will look at her life as it transformed from a little-known singer into a multimillion-record-selling entertainer and trendsetter.

The issue joins a growing collection of similar titles from Bluewater Productions. Previous subjects in the “Female Force” comic book series include: Betty White, Michelle Obama, Barbara Walters, Sarah Palin and Margaret Thatcher, among others.
