I believe if we want to bring a long lasting and sustainable change to the society, it can be done through shaping the kids who are the future. Whatever efforts we make to bring the change will last as our endeavours will loose the vigour, but to bring about a large impact change there should be someone to carry forward the torch and then only steps taken towards a better society and a better world will cross the finish line.
CRY has made me realize how lucky I am, and it made me appreciate my education. It empowered me to use my education wisely, to help others who aren’t as lucky. It has also made me to appreciate my family, without them, I do not know where I would be.
It provides me with a medium through which I can communicate my vision. It provides me with the resources, guidance and focus.
I just stumbled on CRY accidentally at one of its events and that’s how I knew about it. I am a fun loving guy and could never imagine charity could be so fun! The DJ Dance Party, one of CRY events, which helped underprivileged kids by raising funds was just awesome. I made lots of new friends with different backgrounds. The feeling that you are making a difference to children’s lives by just volunteering for fun event is great. CRY is not just about raising funds but also about directing the funds at the right places at the right time in right direction. It has also made me realise how much disparity still exists in world. I strongly feel, children, who are our future, definitely have to have their basic human rights. I would definitely give CRY a thumbs-up!
As a human being I have a moral obligation to the society to serve & help deserving & needy individuals or groups and this is what motivates me to volunteer. I started volunteering with CRY in 1999 and have been involved in fundraising and active participation in conducting CRY events in Kuwait.CRY fulfills the trust & faith entrusted upon them by millions of their supporters through education, development and protection of children in India.
Your Every effort is important.. Big or Small doesn’t matter..
I believe, all living beings need (and have the right to) the tangible basics of life on a sustained basis – food, clothing, shelter, education (roti, kapda, makan aur gyaan), besides the intangibles of care, nurturing, love, respect and ‘a voice’. Children are no exception, in India or anywhere else in the world. There are scores of children in India who struggle to have many/most of these basics which many of us take for granted many a times. Our role, as ‘privileged’ humans should be to directly/indirectly support activities which grant them these tangible and intangible basics, so that they can eventually improve the lots of their own communities/ future generations.
We are so privileged to have what we want and be where we are. I always feel like we need to give it back to complete the circle. We had it when we needed it now we need to pass it forward. I volunteer for CRY because I know how education can change a child’s life. CRY helps fix the problem from roots up.
