Madonna has flown to Malawi for a week of charity engagements in the African country.
The pop superstar, who has adopted two children from the impoverished nation, has poured money into the region through her Raising Malawi Foundation and is scheduled to launch the construction of her girls school on Tuesday (06Apr10) by laying the first brick.
The $15 million (£10 million) Raising Malawi Academy for Girls is set to open in 2011.
During her trip, the Material Girl will also visit a United Nations Millennium Village project, an initiative which builds communities in poverty-stricken areas.
