Logistical problems and other concerns have led Madonna to abandon her plan to build a girls-only school in Malawi.
But the new leader of her project said the pop star instead plans to build many more schools with other educational groups.
In a phone interview with The Associated Press, Trevor Neilson said part of the problem with Raising Malawi's initial plan was that local villagers laid claim to the land the government had selected for the school.
Mr Neilson said Madonna's new strategy would allow Raising Malawi to educate "10 times" the children initially targeted.
