CRY - Child Rights and You is an Indian Non Government Organisation that catalyses change in the lives of underprivileged children in India by restoring their rights. In a nutshell, CRY believes that the rights approach is the only one that works. And because the alternatives are not just ineffective but illegal and unjust. CRY acts as a catalyst between grassroots-level NGOs and individuals who work with marginalised children, their parents and communities and the public.
1) Development organisations and individuals working at grassroots-level
with marginalised children, their families and communities
2) People like you, coming together from all walks of life who believe in the rights of children.
A happy, healthy and creative child whose rights are protected and honoured in a society that is built on respect for dignity, justice and equity for all. 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. And people to discover their potential for action and change.
To enable peoples' collectives and
movements encompassing diverse segments, to pledge their particular
strengths, working in partnership to secure, protect and honour the rights
of India's children. Our role is that of an enabler and in so doing, we have
been able to not only accomplish numerous milestones but also create an
institution that is a unique model of a community movement that takes
responsibility for its weakest and most vulnerable members and motivates and
catalyses change on their behalf. We work in partnership with individuals
and organisations, whom we support financially / non-financially as well as
with you, people from all walks of life, who believe in the rights of
children. Within CRY too, each function works in unison towards ensuring our
vision - equal rights for all children.
