The Five Places Melania Trump Will Visit in Nairobi First lady Melania Trump brings "Be Best" campaign to Malawi school

State House said Melania's visit to Kenya follows a discussion she held with Margaret at White House when the Kenyan First Lady accompanied President Uhuru Kenyatta on a visit to Washington DC in August. The school is among those in the landlocked country that receive education assistance from the U.S. Agency for International Development, including textbooks. It is her first major solo worldwide trip ever since her husband, Donald Trump became president.

Melania Trump, on the second stop of a five-day goodwill tour of Africa, visited a school in Malawi, where the young children sang that they were so happy to see her.

Children living at The Nest in Nairobi greeted her with singing and dancing, and it didn't take long before the typically reserved USA first lady gave in to the moment.

"I think her "Be Best" project will benefit our children, which in turn will benefit our country".

She also visited a site where 105 tons of ivory was burned as part of an effort to discourage the trade.

A batch of 1.4 million books donated Thursday brought to almost 10 million the total Malawi has received in recent years under USAID's national reading program, officials said.

Her visit has included promoting the work of the U.S. Agency for International Development, whose funding President Trump has twice proposed slashing by almost a third.

Melania Trump's solo trip to Africa has captivated worldwide aid and global health advocates, who have otherwise watched in frustration as the Trump administration moved to defund and deprioritize longstanding American programs aimed at strengthening Africa and solidifying USA interests across the developing world.

She is on her first-ever visit to Africa and her first extended solo worldwide trip as first lady.

The First Lady traveled to the Chipala Primary School, and was greeted by the Minister of Education, Science, and Technology, Bright Msaka and the Head Teacher, Maureen Masi.

Staff praised her for visiting.

Melania Trump has sashayed to the beat of African music while being welcomed to an orphanage in Kenya.

"We've been watching from afar as we see the pictures of her with children and our colleagues on the ground who are doing such good work", Nauert told reporters at a briefing Tuesday.

He said Trump has alienated many Africans with his "God-awful remarks insulting the entirety of Africa in the most vile terms", reference to the president's crude referral to Haiti and some African nations as "shithole countries" that send too many immigrants to the U.S. And, Brigety noted, Trump created a political furor when he inaccurately asserted that white farmers in South Africa were subject to "large-scale killing". "I was heartened to spend time with the students and was honoured to donate school supplies and soccer balls".

One said #MELANIATOO, with the "ME" in bold black.

Melania Trump also laughed after one of the baby elephants made a sudden move and she momentarily lost her footing.
