It is integral that children’s mental, physical and cognitive development is not compromised during their formative years. Regular intake of essential nutrition is required to avoid any long-term or even irreversible damage to their growth.

Help protect them from recurring diseases or stunted growth, irrespective of their socio-economic background.

Protect children from child labour by investing in their safety
Poverty in India is one of the reasons why children from marginalized communities are more vulnerable to neglect, abuse, and violence. Living in unsafe environments can prove to be quite dangerous to their social, mental, and physical development. By donating to CRY’s programs, you can help provide safety and protection for underprivileged children from child labour, child marriage, and child trafficking.

Help children continue education by investing in their education
According to UNICEF, the pandemic has led to the closure of over 1.5 million schools in India for almost two years, affecting 247 million children of the opportunity to learn. It is of paramount importance that children go to school and complete their education. Quality education helps in many ways - it not only develops social and emotional skills but also contributes to nurturing life skills, knowledge and capabilities Contribute to CRY’s bridge learning initiative and help address the learning gap in India.

Ensure vaccination for children by investing in their health
Children must receive timely vaccinations to grow up healthy and immunization against life-threatening diseases and your donation can ensure that.
