She will also meet with groups fighting AIDS. Mrs. Obama will speak to young women at a U.S.-sponsored forum focusing on social and economic initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa.

She will close her trip with a two-day visit to Botswana.

The Africa trip is Mrs. Obama's second official overseas trip without her husband, following a visit to Mexico last year.
