Chinkota Village

Tsiyent Foroyati, 52, sits in the dirt-yard of her homestead, in Chinkota Village just outside Lilongwe on July 13, 2011. The abandoned site looks like a quarried mine, but the bleak terraces of gravelly sand near Malawi's capital are the only evidence of US singer Madonna's $15 million (euros) academy that was ditched in a cloud of misused funds.
