What CRY UK Does To Ensure Child Rights
We do not believe in charity. We do not run schools, orphanages or dispensaries. Instead, we partner CRY India and grassroots NGOs - organisations with proven efficiency and accountability - who work tirelessly in key areas affecting underprivileged children. Through their expertise, we aim to address the underlying root causes of issues affecting children in India, and work systematically to eradicate them.
The initiatives we support work at the grassroots-level to restore the basic rights of children, including street children, the girl child, children bonded in labour, children of commercial sex workers, physically and mentally challenged children and children in juvenile institutions.
We select these initiatives based on their track record, the issues they address and the impact of their work on the lives of children, their families and their communities. We support them in various ways - through funding, training, advocacy and networking with other organisations working in similar areas. We work closely with CRY India, who, over the past 30 years, has developed highly effective systems for selecting, planning, monitoring and evaluating such interventions.
CRY UK operates with impeccable standards of trust, transparency, equality and accountability. We annually report on all areas of our work to our supporters, donors and volunteers.
Over 15, 00,000 children across India now have opportunities that they could only dream of before, because people like you chose to make it happen. However, the number of children still denied their rights far exceed those who were able to benefit from our efforts. In order to bring about lasting change that ensures rights to all Indian children, we aim to bring about a change in mindset, where children are not considered to be objects of sympathy, but equal citizens, with the same fundamental rights as every Indian adult.
