First Lady Visits School in Malawi, Promotes ‘Be Best’ Campaign

US First Lady Melania Trump who is in Africa to promote her children's welfare programme described her visit to the Chipala primary school in Malawi as

Melania Trump's visit, which started in Ghana and will continue on to Kenya and Egypt, has so far attracted varied interest levels in Africa with few crowds lining streets to see her.

But she lost her footing as the boisterous elephant bundled past.

Her visit shall also highlight her passion for wildlife and conservation as she takes a trip to the Nairobi National Park where she will adopt an animal in one of the animal orphanages.

The young elephants looked to be having the time of their lives, as their carers and Melania's attentive bodyguards watched on.

Dressed in riding pants, boots and a white safari hat, she took photos and peered through binoculars for a closer look at zebras, giraffes, impalas, rhinos and hippos.

Terminal 2 will be closed ahead of US First Lady Melania Trump's arrival on Thursday night.

During Trump's tour, she is focusing on child welfare.

Her visit has included promoting the work of the US Agency for International Development, whose funding President Donald Trump has twice proposed slashing by almost a third. Lawmakers essentially ignored those requests.

The First Lady began her two-day trip to Nairobi at a national park near the Kenyan capital.

With a smile on her face, the first lady read along with children during their lessons.

Melani then made a stop over in Malawi on Thursday, October 4, where she visited a number of primary schools benefiting from U.S. assistance and handed over another 1.4 million books through an American funded national reading program.

One woman's sign said #MELANIATOO, with the "ME" in bold black.

The White House said Malawi was chosen because of the high poverty rate and the difficulties children-especially girls-have in accessing education.

Mr Trump incurred the wrath of Africans in February this year when he used the word "shithole" to refer to African nations when talking about immigration. A third sign raised the immigration policy the president once enforced that led to thousands of children being separated from their families after they illegally entered the US from Mexico.

The US first lady also went on a quick safari.
