Madonna has arrived in Malawi to lay the first brick of a new school funded by her charity, which supports poverty-stricken children in the southern African country.
The Raising Malawi Academy for Girls promises to be a family and support centre, allowing female students to attend regular classes as well as giving them access to medical care and regular meals.
"The Academy will be much more than just a school in a country where one million children have been orphaned due to Aids, the Academy will educate, protect, and empower young girls," the charity said.
Madonna will be joined by economist Jeffrey Sachs, a development affairs expert who recently entered the debate over the so-called Robin Hood tax, saying it could help boost aid to Africa.
The first item on the pop singer's itinerary in Malawi is a trip to a UN community initiative called the Millennium Village, which promotes sustainable development.
Madonna has donated millions of pounds towards projects in Malawi and has also adopted two children from the impoverished nation.
She won a court battle that had initially blocked her adoption of toddler Mercy James last year, but met criticism from children's charities that suggested the girl could be better cared for in her home country.
The singer's £10m, located on the outskirts of the country's capital Lilongwe is set to open in 2011.
