We at CRY believe that every child has a right to a childhood –
to live, learn, grow and play. This year the CRY in Action
newsletter focuses on putting children first and to ensure
they experience a childhood they deserve.

“For the first time in my life I wanted to be educated, I want to learn fast, become a civil engineer and start a promising career. I feel that I should become an engineer who knows to sketch huge buildings. I understand now that we also have rights. In the long run, we want this society to treat us as children- discrimination or privilege is not needed. I would like to change along with my peers in the children collectives, the prevailing mindset that children from slums are a useless, sinful bunch. If given a chance, we are also capable of doing wonders.” –

“Changing the lives of children is a continuous process. Nothing can be done in a limited period. As individuals we have to continue to give support by way of financial help, time as well as other resources. I believe in continuity and devotion without deviation. CRY is doing just that.”-
Pawan Gupta, Donor, Delhi
