Some of them were abandoned or their parents are incarcerated. She praised the first lady for making the trip and presented her with a ceremonial textbook.

United States First Lady Melania Trump is expected in Kenya on Friday as part of her first solo global trip as FLOTUS.

The Kenya Wildlife Service headquarters is also anticipating a visit by Melania Trump. At the front of the room, the first lady sat next to a student called Miliam and helped her find the correct page in her textbook.

On her Kenyan leg of the trip, Melania is expected to visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, hold meetings at State House and be entertained at the Kenya National Theatre.

During the Friday visit, the US First Lady greeted, sang and danced with the children at The Nest Children's Home before she was briefed on their progress and undertakings.


The national park is where 105 tonnes of ivory have been burned to discourage the trade.

Earlier this year, President Donald Trump quietly made a decision to once again allow Americans to import body parts of African elephants shot for sport. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who oversees the agency that lifted the ban, also is an avid hunter.

As Kenya prepares to receive the US First Lady on Thursday, October 4, Trump noted it was handsome to watch her while in Africa.

During Trump's tour, she is focusing on child welfare.

After leaving the ambassador's residence, Mrs Trump went to the State House for tea with Gertrude Mutharika, her Malawian counterpart.

According to Malawi State House official says Mrs Trump was looking forward to seeing how the USA can continue working together with Malawi to support a USAid programme that is focused on children's education.
