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.

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

Melania is now undertaking a four-nation tour of Africa, which started in Ghana where she visited landmarks including Cape Coast Castle, a landmark to the historical slave trade.

School educators also explained to the first lady how important the USAID textbook donations, which help power the country's National Reading Program, are to children at the school. "It is a attractive thing to see".

The White House is donating "Be Best"-themed school supplies, including totes, chalk for teachers, and soccer balls". Mrs. Trump sat in a rooftop garden and watched performances by dance groups representing different regions of Malawi.
