India has an estimated 46 million children between 6 and 18 years of age who are not in school (source: RGI Census Population Projection 2016 and Unified DISE 2016–17). Numerous students leave school, either to work as child labourers or because they are required to get married.

Even though schools have officially resumed operations, students continue to experience academic difficulties. Children have lost out on many crucial life skills and learning opportunities as a result of the long gap. During this time, many of them were even compelled to stop their education and drop out of school. If this learning crisis is not resolved quickly, many students may permanently leave school, thus jeopardising their bright futures.

In order to address this problem, CRY established Academic and Psychosocial Support Centers that are assisting children in many states to get back into their studies and gain the confidence they need to return to school by:

At CRY, we were able to increase the enrollment rates from 70% to approximately 90%* thanks to this programme and the exceptional support of volunteers, donors, and CRY teams (*indicates 6-14-year-old children in the CRY intervention areas enrolled in school as compared to non-intervention areas).

CRY, India’s best NGO for children, has been working hard to encourage and empower India's children. We aim to reconnect them with their school education, and we have now reached 30,000 children. We need your support to reach 100,000 and provide them the tools they need to rethink their future. Children in India will have the opportunity to pursue their aspirations, thanks to your support for CRY's Academic and Psychosocial Support Centers during this pivotal period.
