CRY- Child Rights and You
CRY - Child Rights and You is an Indian NGO that is working towards ensuring a lasting change in the lives of underprivileged children, for close to four decades, across 23 states in the country.
Work and Achievements
CRY – Child Rights and You is an Indian NGO, founded in 1979 with the dream that no Indian child would be deprived of basic rights like survival, participation, protection and development. Working with and for children and their families across 23 states in India for close to four decades, we have learnt that permanent change is possible only when we tackle the root causes that continue to keep children uneducated, exploited and vulnerable.
With the support of concerned Indians, CRY has changed the lives of more than 2,000,000 children by supporting over 200 grassroots from villages and slums across India. By partnering NGOs and communities, CRY has conclusively proven that sustainable change is possible when communities have the information and the motivation to come together to ensure lasting change in the lives of children.
At CRY, we are committed to our vision for a happy, healthy and creative childhood for every child. Over the course of the next 10 years, and to continue to make children and their rights a priority, we have reiterated goals that CRY as an organisation is committed to strive for. These include ensuring children in CRY-supported projects have access to free and quality education, primary healthcare and are safe from violence, abuse and exploitation. We will also work towards reducing the rate of child malnutrition and make sure children’s voices are recognised in issues that affect them.
