The US First Lady heads to Egypt on the final leg of her African tour after a packed Friday schedule that saw her visit State House Nairobi for talks with her host First Lady Margaret Kenyatta among other engagements in Nairobi.

The State House meeting focused on matters of health especially the welfare of mothers and children, a subject that is close to the hearts of the two First Ladies.

First Lady Margaret Kenyatta is the patron of the transformative Beyond Zero initiative while US First Lady Melania Trump is the founder and promoter of the “Be Best” initiative designed to improve the welfare of children.
