Melania announced her support following a private luncheon at Mar-a-Lago May 6, commemorating the fifth anniversary of her “Be Best” campaign, which sought to tackle some of the major issues facing children in their physical, social and emotional well-being, the outlet stated.
Since leaving the White House, the former First Lady has worked to expand the initiative, awarding computer science scholarships to children coming out of the foster care system to help them become independent and contributing members of society, Fox News reported.
“At the present time, there are more than 400,000 children in the foster care system, and there is less than a 3% chance of former foster children completing their college education. In fact, many end up on the street, homeless,” she explained. “My objective is to reduce the gap and increase access to higher education for those who leave the foster care system.”
