Melania Trump spotlights USAID reading programme in Malawi

Flying from Ghana, Trump arrived at Kamuzu International Airport on October 4 where she was greeted by Gertrude Maseko, the first lady of Malawi, in a ceremony that featured drummers, dancers, and students waving the flags of both countries.

During her visit to Malawi, Melania visited the country's capital, Lilongwe, and toured Chapala Primary School alongside headteacher Maureen Masi, where she observed English lessons and met teachers. More girls than boys were in the first outside lesson, which totaled 275 students.

She also plans to visit the Statehouse to meet over tea with Malawi's first lady, Gertrude Mutharika. She will hold a brief meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta. Her first solo foreign trip as first lady will take her to four African countries.

She also spoke about the visit later in the day while talking to embassy staff at the United States ambassador's residence, saying: "What an awesome experience".

The U.S. first lady was joyously welcomed at the airport, with singing and dancing by a troupe of women and scores of schoolchildren waving African and Malawian flags.
