CRY- Child Rights and You
To enable people to take responsibility for the situation of the deprived Indian child and so motivate them to seek resolution through individual and collective action thereby enabling children to realise their full potential.
Work and Achievements
CRY is an Indian non-profit organization that believes in every child’s right to a happy childhood - to live, learn, grow and play. We address children’s critical needs by working with parents, teachers, Anganwadi workers, communities, district and state level governments as well as the children themselves. We focus on changing behaviors and practices at the ground level and influencing public policy for advocacy at a systemic level - thereby creating an ecosystem where children are made the nation’s priority.
In the last 40 years, with the help of our partners, donors, volunteers and supporters, we have impacted the lives of over 3 million children across 19 states in India.
