Obama's daughters, Sasha and Malia tour Africa with mother Michelle Obama to promote education

Michelle Obama and her daughters touched down in Morocco on the next leg of their six-day trip to promote education in Africa on Monday evening, where they were welcomed by King Mohammed VI's wife, Princess Lalla Selma at the airport.

The first lady and her family landed at Menara Airport in Marrakesh after spending the day at a leadership camp for girls in Liberia, where she urged the teens to keep fighting to stay in school. More photos after the cut...

With her own teenage daughters Malia and Sasha joining her, Obama told the girls:
 'I'm just so thrilled to be here with you.'
'I'm here to shine a big bright light on you,' she said.
Education for girls is the central theme of the first lady's six-day trip, which also includes a stop in Spain after Morocco.
