First Lady Melania Trump is in the midst of her first solo trip abroad since Trump took office and she is receiving huge praise. The first lady is in Africa to promote her "Be Best" campaign.

According to Fox News:

First lady Melania Trump has embarked on her first big solo international trip – and first visit to Africa – with plans to visit four countries in just five days, focusing on child welfare.

Her trip will include a bevy of visits to schools, shelters and hospitals while she focuses on the well-being of children. The mother of a 12-year-old son, child welfare is an important issue for Trump, who launched her advocacy initiative "Be Best" earlier this year. As Trump says, the campaign is "shining a spotlight on successful programs and organizations that teach children tools and skills."

First up on the trip for Trump is Ghana. She arrived in the West African nation on Tuesday and visited a baby clinic. She toured wings of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, including an older part of the hospital and a newer facility, and passed out teddy bears wrapped in blankets.

Trump, too, got a firsthand look at how babies are weighed at the hospital. (They’re placed in sacks that are then hung from a hook attached to a scale.) She also watched a nurse demonstrate how vitamins are administered to babies by mouth.

The trip is reportedly also helping to show the people of Africa that they are positively on the Trump White House agenda.
