On Friday, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta will take Melania to visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust before heading to State House for talks.

ABC News says its reporter Tom Llamas will interview Melania Trump during her trip to Africa for a "20/20" special to air October 12.

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here".

On her first day in Ghana, Trump visited a baby clinic and toured Greater Accra Regional Hospital and a new facility where she passed out teddy bears and spent time with the children.

Mrs. Trump is on her first visit to Africa and her first extended solo global trip as first lady.

Mrs. Trump's visit includes promoting the work of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the funding of which President Donald Trump has twice proposed slashing by almost a third.

Melania held a baby as she thanked the orphanage staff for taking care of the children.

Melania will complete her solo worldwide trip in Egypt on Saturday before returning to the United States.
