The CDF’s Beat the Odds Scholarship and Leadership Award Program

Here’s another inspiring story about what Marian Wright Edelman’s Children’s Defense Fund is achieving. It’s Beat the Odds Scholarship and Leadership Award program shows that an impoverished background is not a function of intelligence or capability. It shows that when given opportunity, everyone can not only be productive but brilliant contributors to society. It is only our unwillingness to change beliefs and economic systems holding people down that stand in the way.

Thank you for being present Children’s Defense Fund.
