US First Lady Melania Trump on Wednesday announced that she would visit Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt on October, a trip majored at promoting child welfare and education.

Trump was speaking at a reception for the spouses of state and other foreign delegations on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

“October 1 will mark the first day of my solo visit to four beautiful and very different countries in Africa: Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt,” she said.

She praised countries that worked alongside USAID in making progress towards overcoming some of their biggest challenges.

Her trip to Africa will focus on good-deed projects.

Earlier on Wednesday, Donald Trump trailed his wife’s announcement, saying “we both love Africa. Africa is so beautiful.
