Melania Trump visits Malawi school as part of Africa tour

Melania Trump promotes US agency Trump wants to cut funding

Children living at The Nest in Nairobi greeted her Friday with singing and dancing, and it didn't take long before the typically reserved US first lady gave in to the moment.

First lady Melania Trump walks with singing children as she visits the Nest Orphanage in Limuru, Kenya, Friday, Oct. 5, 2018.

She will also go on a quick safari.

The remaining stops on her tour are Kenya and Egypt.

It is her first major solo global trip ever since her husband, Donald Trump became president. Speaking of, the wife of Donald Trump was almost knocked over by an excited elephant during her visit to the animal sanctuary. Upon her departure, the first lady gifted children with dozens of "Be Best" soccer balls, tote bags and school supplies. She plans to meet with Kenya's first lady and take in a performance at Nairobi National Theater.

United States First Lady Melania Trump took it in her stride when she was almost upended by a baby elephant she was feeding in Kenya.

Melania Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, did not respond to emails seeking comment on the clash between the focus of the first lady's trip and her husband's policies.

The convoy of the US First Lady however passed by without any incident and Mrs Trump might have seen the protests.

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", she said after the school visit, speaking to USA embassy workers.

Many past American first ladies have also made trips to the African continent, including Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton.

A batch of 1.4 million books donated Thursday brought to almost 10 million the total Malawi has received in recent years under USAID's national reading program, officials said.

At the primary school, the first lady watched dozens of pupils sitting on the ground in the sun as a teacher taught on a blackboard on the side of a building.

"She loves meeting people, learning new things, and being around kids", Grisham said.
