      The First Daughter touched down in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, early Sunday and took to Instagram to share photos of her first meeting as the head of WGDPI.  

      Ivanka smiled as she sat and listened to her hosts alongside Mark Green, administrator of the US Agency for International Development.  

      'Joined @USAIDMarkGreen with the Ethiopian Women in Coffee Association (EWIC) for a great discussion (and coffee cupping!) with inspiring female entrepreneurs,' she wrote in the caption of a three-photo set. 

       

      'With @USAID support, they are overcoming lack of access to capital and growing their businesses.'  

      Ivanka is due to visit Ethiopia and Ivory Coast over the next four days and is flying commercial, rather than using a US State Department aircraft. 

      The White House said her schedule includes a women's economic empowerment summit in Ivory Coast as well as site visits and meetings with political leaders, executives and female entrepreneurs in both countries.
