During her time in Kenya, Jill Biden is going to meet not just with Rachel Ruto, who serves as her counterpart in Kenya, but also with other high-ranking officials in the Kenyan government.

Jill Biden is making her third trip to Kenya overall, but this is the first time she has visited the country in her role as First Lady of the United States.

Jill's trip to Kenya was announced by the US Embassy in Kenya, and in the announcement, it was said that the purpose of her trip was to build American relationships on the African continent and promote shared goals in the area.

In conjunction with that, she is going to talk about issues concerning the empowerment of young people as well as famine remedial actions that have to be adopted all throughout the nation.

A portion of the announcement stated as follows: "Dr Biden's participation will concentrate on empowering women and youth, tackling food poverty, and advocating our fundamental democratic principles." 

Following a report by CNN, the visit by the First Lady takes place before the trips that are anticipated to be made by her husband, Vice President Joe Biden, and other top government officials later on in this year.

Notable leaders from the United States who have toured the nation include US Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield and US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who both travelled around the country in January 2023.

On his trip to Kenya, Greenfield spoke with a variety of people, including businesspeople located in Kenya, officials from the United Nations, students studying international relations, and graduates of US outreach programs.
