导读:周二,马拉维政府指责麦当娜在当地建立10所新学校的计划未经过与政府的协商,称其只顾塑造个人的全球形象,而非真正想要帮助当地教育。麦当娜迄今已经从马拉维收养了2个孩子,今年1月,她曾表示已经和当地非营利组织buildOn合作,要建立新学校,每年可至少为1000名儿童提供教育。然而马拉维教育部发言人表示,政府已经受够了麦当娜,因为其行事从来不征求政府意见,让人感觉她只是想提高个人的全球形象,并不关心当地的教育利益。“她没有权力决定把新学校建在哪里,因为她不知道我们的需要,不知道哪里需要学校。她做任何事情之前首先应该和我们商量,得到我们的准许之后再做。”

 Malawi's government on Tuesday accused Madonna of not consulting over her plans to build 10 new schools in the poor southern African state and said the singer seemed more interested in promoting her global image than helping with education there.

But the head of an organization that pop star Madonna brought in to help with her efforts in Malawi fired back, saying the government accusation was "simply not true" and that it had been "fully updated" on the singer's plans.

Madonna, who has adopted two children from Malawi, announced in January her Raising Malawi charity was teaming up with the non-profit group buildOn to construct the schools, which would educate at least 1,000 children a year.

Malawi's Ministry of Education spokeswoman Lindiwe Chide told Reuters the government was "fed up" with Madonna. Chide said that when the singer last year scrapped a previously planned academy for girls in Malawi, alleging mismanagement and cost overruns, she did not inform Malawian authorities. "Now she decides to announce that she plans to build 10 schools without getting authority from us again," Chide said. "We now feel like this is all about propping up her global image and not in our interest," she added.

Trevor Neilson, who heads up Global Philanthropy Group, said in a statement released by the pop star's New York-based spokeswoman: "This is simply not true. The government of Malawi has been fully updated on Madonna's effort to provide funding for ten schools to be built in communities where there are no schools."

Madonna's earlier plan to build a state of the art girls school for about 400 girls just outside the Malawi capital Lilongwe collapsed last year, and the board of her Raising Malawi charity was fired. The New York Times said at the time that $3.8 million had been spent on the school with little to show for it. The singer has lent $11 million to the organization which she co-founded in 2006. Chide said: "She has no mandate to decide where she wants to build a school because she doesn't know our needs and where we want new schools ... she first needed to consult us, get permission from us before doing anything".
