The world’s richest man, Bill Gates, joined Instagram and shared his first post from Tanzania, where he had lunch with students at the Kicheba Primary School in Muheza.
The co-founder of Microsoft and American business magnate, investor, author and philanthropist, who already has about 200K followers in about 24 hours also shared a picture of himself and his wife, Melinda Gates, as she celebrates her birthday yesterday, 15th August.
Hello from Tanzania, Instagram!
I just had a great lunch with some amazing kids at Kicheba Primary School in Muheza and met Upendo Mwingira, a remarkable physician who has dedicated her career to fighting neglected tropical diseases.
Melinda and I have been coming to Tanzania for many years now. I always love seeing how much progress the country has made to improve health and provide opportunity. Plus, the scenery is stunning.
Whenever I travel to places like this, I wish others could come along and meet the people I get to meet. I have no doubt it would leave them as optimistic as I am about progress happening around the world. I’ll be sharing photos from my adventures here on Instagram, and I hope you’ll follow along.
Happy birthday, Melinda! I am the luckiest man in the world to have you by my side.
