Melania Trump is visiting Malawi, the second stop on a five-day goodwill visit to Africa.

The US first lady landed in the capital of Lilongwe (lih-LON'-gweh) on Thursday morning after a six-hour flight from Ghana. She is focusing the trip on her interest in child welfare.

At a primary school in Lilongwe, Mrs Trump is expected to tour classrooms, observe an English lesson, meet teachers and donate textbooks and soccer balls. She also plans to visit the Statehouse to meet over tea with Malawi's first lady, Gertrude Mutharika.

The first ladies also are expected to walk through the gardens and watch a traditional dance performance.
