Jill Biden arrives in Kenya to focus on women’s empowerment and food insecurity


Jill Biden, the first lady of the United States, arrived in Kenya on February 24, 2023, for her third visit to the country.

Prior to her visit to Kenya, she visited Namibia, her first stop in Africa since becoming the first lady.

She was welcomed by the Kenyan first lady, Mama Rachel Ruto, and East African Community CS Rebecca Miano upon her arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

During her visit, Jill Biden will focus on women’s empowerment, children’s issues, and food insecurity in the region.

In December 2022, her husband, US President Joe Biden, announced a large humanitarian aid package at a summit that brought African leaders to Washington.

Jill Biden will engage with those affected by drought and facing food insecurity in Kenya, and will champion women’s economic empowerment projects such as table banking to strengthen ties between the United States and Kenya.

The visit highlights the importance of the African continent in US foreign policy.

Jill Biden will be in Kenya until February 26, 2023, as she continues to strengthen America’s partnerships with Kenya and the African continent.
