PFLAG National is dedicated to creating a world where our young people may grow and learn, free from fear, violence, bullying and discrimination because of their real or perceived gender identity or sexual orientation, or because of the identities of their families or friends.

One can appreciate the benefit of having a scholarship program running in their community cause, it does help those children who are financially lacking, to support their schooling. Another thing is, organization get to discover who among these children are good enough to attend school and who are willing to go to one.

It's good to hear that there are programs such as this one that provides free education to those people who are interested in studying. Hopefully, there's also a program that would in turn think about our senior's overall condition.
