Voices of Child Rights Supporters

  • Ms. Sharmila Tagore Said, "Given India's contribution to the world economy, we are in a unique position to make child deprivation a thing of the past. Today, 42% of the world's hungry children are said to be living in India. Half of the 440 million children in India do not complete their schooling. If we all decide to do something to end child deprivation in India today, such chilling statistics need not challenge us anymore."

  • Soha Ali Khan said, "There are stories of immense hope and joy from some of India's most neglected areas that support from the global community has made possible. I think it's time for us to step up to our responsibility and make sure children in India don't go unschooled or undernourished."

  • Mudit R, says "I have known of 'Child Rights and You' as a long standing Indian organisation working for social change where it is most required and least available. I believe that CRY has the intent, the processes, and the people to professionally deploy resources and make a real difference to Indian children. This is neither a simple nor a short-term job, and CRY continues to prove itself, earn respect, and change lives. This is why I volunteer in a small way to help CRY, now in UK as CRY UK raise funds. Not only has this provided the satisfaction of being able to contribute to a significant cause, it has continued to be a lot of fun with many more like minded professionals. The learning, the fun gatherings and cool events surely beat the joys of apathy or armchair criticism! I hope to get a step closer to real social change with CRY UK".

  • "It has been 3 years now since I have been involved with here in UK. During this time we as volunteers within CRY have organised a number of events to create awareness on child rights and generate funds towards the projects in India. What started off as intent to make a small difference quickly translated into an endeavour to see how best we can make a difference for the CRY group and their projects sitting here in UK.

    The experience has been nothing short of satisfying to be part of a group which wants to make a contribution however small it maybe. Hopefully with the thought that this small contribution quickly grows to larger contributions not only in terms of donations but also in terms of a larger volunteer group" - Rohit Nath, volunteer
