Melania Trump takes off for Africa for her first tour without her husband

The first lady of the United States, Melania Trump, took off today for Africa for her first solo tour since she arrived at the White House, in which she will visit Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.

The wife of President Donald Trump will land on Tuesday morning in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, where he will begin a journey through a continent that, according to his team, has never visited and always wanted to go.

Melania Trump made no statement to the press before boarding her plane, dressed in a brown suede raincoat and leopard-print stilettos.

The first American lady plans to visit hospitals, schools and do some tourism in each of the four countries, according to the White House.

In Egypt, Melania is expected to visit the pyramids of Giza, one of the country's main tourist attractions, according to CNN.

In Ghana and Malawi, the first lady will review some initiatives of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), focusing on medical care for mothers and newborns, while in Kenya will focus on promoting early childhood education and disease prevention .

"She believes it is important for people around the world to understand that the United States cares about prosperity and (the success of) future generations in other countries," First Lady spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN. .

He is also expected to speak in those countries about his "Be Best" initiative, which seeks to promote a healthier and drug-free life for children, as well as combating Internet harassment.

This is Melania Trump's first solo international tour, but not her first solo trip abroad as first lady, since in September 2017 she visited Canada to lead the US delegation in the third edition of the Invictus Games for soldiers wounded in conflicts .
