Lady GaGa has established a youth foundation with her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, which will launch in 2012.
The eccentric diva announced plans for herBorn This Way Foundation on Twitter last night, stating: "I'm proud to announce: My mommy + I have created "The Born This Way Foundation" A place for Bravery, Love, Acceptance."
GaGa's organisation will aim to abolish intolerance of individuality, embrace humanity and build "a brave new world", with a statement on the charity's Facebook page explaining: "Lady GaGa proudly announces the launch of the Born This Way Foundation (BTWF), which will support programmes and initiatives that deal with all aspects of empowering youth."
"The non-profit charitable organisation will lead youth into a braver new society where each individual is accepted and loved as the person they were born to be."
The statement added: "BTWF will focus on youth empowerment and equality by addressing issues like self-confidence, wellbeing, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development and will utilize digital mobilization as one of the means to create positive change."
Lady GaGa also explained: "My mother and I have initiated a passion project. We call it the Born This Way Foundation. Together we hope to establish a standard of bravery and kindness, as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment."
The BTWF website - which is already encouraging Lady G's Little Monsters to sign up for more information - is currently displaying the message: "This Way, towards bravery... where youth are empowered. This way, towards acceptance... where humanity is embraced. This way, towards love... where individuality is encouraged."
