A Happy Childhood - some of our best memories that are irreplaceable. This Children’s Day,
CRY - Child Rights and You invites you to celebrate childhood and re-live some of your happiest memories with the ‘Child in You’ campaign.

Revisit the joy and excitement of the things that made your childhood exciting – the first day of school, writing on the first page of a new notebook, new pencil boxes and new school uniforms, laughing, playing and even getting punished with friends, sharing tiffin boxes in break-time…going to school has given us all such rich experiences. Yet for thousands of children in India, these are memories they cannot make. Because they are not in school. Because they cannot go to school or have dropped out from school. Some times because there is no school to go to.

As we celebrate Children’s Day this month, join CRY and the ‘Child in You’ campaign to ensure the right to free and quality education for every child in this country.
