Madonna Handmakes Exotic Bags for Nairobi Children

Africa-PressKenya. Celebrated US pop star Madonna Louise Ciccone, mononymously known as Madonna, has elevated her philanthropy to a whole new level.

In a post she shared on Instagram, the renowned queen of pop shared an exotic tote bag she designed as a charity for a children’s home based in Nairobi, Kenya.

She designed the bags with the help of her son, David Banda, whom she adopted from Malawi.

The canvas bag is covered in artful quotes and bares the world-famous face of the late revered author James Baldwin which the pop star revealed was hand-drawn by Banda, 15.

“We designed these bags to support Art For Education. David drew James Baldwin’s face and I wrote one of his quotes! All proceeds will be donated to the Chema Vision Children’s center in Nairobi, Kenya. Please support,” she captioned the bag.

While showcasing her latest creation, Madonna wore a Gucci outfit and made a peace sign during her pose.

Some of Baldwin’s quotes that were printed on the bags include, “Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does… Love is a battle, Love is a war. Love is a growing up.”

Madonna adopted Banda in 2006 when he was just 13-months-old.

With her net worth now valued at Ksh85 billion ($850 million), Madonna has continued carrying out various philanthropic activities around the world and has made several visits to Kenya.

As recently as January 2021, Madonna surprised residents of Baringo as she toured the county with a chopper.

The renowned artist also toured Samburu where she freely mingled with locals and was awed by their rich culture that has been preserved for centuries.

In her speech after visiting Baringo Valley, the 62-year-old pop sensation was amazed by the traditions of the Pokot tribe as she joined them in dance.

Madonna jetted into the country from Blantyre, Malawi, where she was involved in a number of charitable causes. They include the Jacaranda School for Orphans and the commissioning of a dance academy – Madame X Dance Studio.

In 2016, the pop star also visited the country and vowed to support First Lady’s Margaret Kenyatta Beyond Zero campaign.
