India signed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), along with 91 other countries, in 1992. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) grants children 4 basic human rights to survival, development, participation and protection. By signing this Convention a country acknowledges children as a distinct group of individuals whose concerns need to be addressed separately under law and policy. Child rights can only become central to India’s agenda if its people choose to make it a priority by demanding government accountability to actualize the rights of children. In this context, CRY UK works single-mindedly to bring about a permanent change in the lives of children.

We believe that providing relief is a short-term exercise and that sustainable change can be brought about only by addressing the structural and systemic root causes of poverty and social exclusion. CRY UK seeks your support to raise public awareness on the state of children, especially Indian and to push for the following non – negotiable changes in order to transform the lives of all children.
