Melania Trump Spotlights USAID Reading Program in Malawi

United States First Lady Melania Trump is expected in Kenya on Friday as part of her first solo international trip as FLOTUS

Mrs. Trump received a joyous welcome upon her arrival at Kamuzu International Airport, with singing and dancing by a troupe of women and scores of schoolchildren waving flags.

Melania Trump began her African tour two days ago when she went to Ghana.

"I am so proud of the work this administration is doing through United States Agency for International Development (Usaid) and others, and look forward to the opportunity to take the message of my "Be Best" campaign to numerous countries and children throughout Africa", she said early this month.

US First Lady Melania Trump brought soccer balls and books to a school in Malawi on Thursday to highlight a USAID scheme to support African schools, on the second stop of her four-nation tour of the continent.

A small handful of protesters held signs along roads in the capital Lilongwe, with one criticising President Trump's reported use of offensive language to describe some African countries earlier this year.

A group of children is also listed to entertain her on Friday.

"No child in this country is without a book", Malawi's Education Minister Bright Msaka told the first lady.

"It was very exciting".

"Trump's motorcade traveled along a roadside where a handful of white protesters greeted the first lady with handmade signs, including a couple that said "Me Too" and "#notashithole!"

Later during a visit at the US embassy in Malawi, the first lady called her visit to the school an "amazing experience".

On Wednesday, she visited a former slave trading fort in Ghana after arriving in Africa from Washington on Tuesday.
