FLOTUS Melania Trump Visiting ‘Beautiful Ghana and other African states such as Malawi, Kenya and Egypt

First Lady Melania Trump leaves Monday to visit Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt highlighting programs successfully teaching children life well-being skills as part of her BE BEST campaign.

Mrs. Trump detailed her trip to African nations at the United States Mission to the United Nations Wednesday. She called the nations “beautiful and very different.” The destinations were chosen for their work alongside USAID and partners that have made “great progress in overcoming some of their biggest challenges.”

Trump recognized in the audience the First Lady of Ghana, First Lady of Malawi, and First Lady of Kenya Margaret Kenyatta.

Mrs. Trump launched the BE BEST campaign “with the goal of combatting some of the issues that children face today by shining a spotlight on successful programs and organizations that teach children the tools and skills needed for emotional, social and physical well-being.”

“In Ghana, USAID’s programs have focused on healthcare by supporting efforts to expand the coverage and quality of health care for mothers and newborns, and educating women and young children about the importance of proper nutrition,” Trump said.

“In Malawi, USAID has demonstrated that education is one of the keys to combating poverty and promoting prosperity.”

“Each of us hails from a country with its own unique challenges, but I know in my heart we are united by our commitment to raising the next generation to be happy, healthy and morally responsible adults,” Trump told the group.

The Office of the First Lady first announced Mrs. Trump’s Africa trip in August. “This will be my first time traveling to Africa and I am excited to educate myself on the issues facing children throughout the continent, while also learning about its rich culture and history,” Trump said at the time.

“I look forward to highlighting the successful humanitarian work and development programs being done in many of the countries.”
