The “Be Best” initiative was launched earlier this year to focus on overall child well-being, with an emphasis on opioid addiction and online behaviour.

Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt have worked closely with the U.S. Agency for International Development, which is helping organize the trip.

Whether it is education, drug addiction, hunger, online safety or bullying, poverty or disease, it is too often children who are hit first, and hardest, across the globe,” Mrs Trump said prior to this visit.
