Child Rights & You Charity Profile
In a nutshell, CRY America believes that the rights approach is the only one that works. And because the alternatives are not just ineffective but illegal and unjust. To highlight our belief in justice for all India's children and enlist support for this transformation, we now changed our name from Child Relief and You to Child Rights and You. Do write or call us to know more on child rights or share with us your suggestions, comments and queries. It's the only way we'll know how you feel about India's children.
Child Rights & You Volunteer Information
Volunteers form the core of CRY America. Currently, most of our volunteers are people of Indian origin. Volunteers come from different walks of life - students from various universities, professionals, housewives and people working in various companies. Each contributes in whichever way they can ... a vital contribution to the organization and the situation of children.
Volunteers work among their colleagues, friends and family to create awareness about the situation of underprivileged children and help harness resources (financial and non-financial) to the cause. These are some of the ways volunteers support CRY America:
Join the CRY America Action Center in their city and take active part in its activities
Start a CRY America Action Center in their city if it doesn't have one already
Help organize events or arrange sponsorship for them
Spread the word about CRY America among friends, colleagues and family
Get CRY America onto the list of supported/approved charities at their place of work
Put up CRY America posters and distribute leaflets at offices, clubs, and other public places
Keep CRY America informed about local events (art exhibitions, concerts, plays) which could provide a platform to create awareness about our work and meet potential donors

Take a pledge
Advocacy, simply put is to 'amplify voice. At CRY, being a Child Rights advocate means - to amplify the voice of children. Too many millions of India's children are still denied the simple joys of childhood, love, protection and so often life itself. And for any change on a significant scale, it will require each one of us to start thinking of children, not as objects of sympathy, but as citizens with the same rights that we consider our due. You do not require any great mission or vision to stand up for what you think is the right thing to do, say, feel, or share.
We believe all children irrespective of their age, caste, class, and gender must be born and treated equally. Each of them is entitled to their right to a childhood.
We invite you to join us by truly involving and committing yourself in this movement to put children first.
