About Child Rights and You
CRY - Child Rights and You is an Indian NGO that catalyses change in the lives of underprivileged children in India by restoring their rights. CRY’s role is that of an enabler between two groups of people – the development organizations working for child rights at the grassroots level and people like you, who come together for child rights.

CRY's belief is that the only sustainable way to make change last is to adopt what they call the 'child rights approach.'
First, by looking at children’s issues in their entirety, rather than through the silos of education, health, child labour, child abuse, foeticide/infanticide and so on.
Then, by understanding the underlying root causes of the deprivation – gender, caste, livelihoods, displacement, geographies and the like.
Finally, mobilising each local community to find long-term solutions to these problems, by ensuring relevant laws and policies that guarantee implementation of their rights.

Time and again CRY has demonstrated that with the right kind of support and encouragement in a child’s life - from parent/s, the community, teachers – their dreams can be nurtured and encouraged. Their voices can be heard; they can stand up stronger and then transform their lives and the lives of the community around them.
