If life is a race, some children start last. Underprivileged and marginalised, they are deprived of their basic human rights as citizens of this country. Being deprived of food, water, shelter, healthcare and education is not just sad; it’s a violation of a child’s right to the basics of existence.
For millions of children in India, these basic necessities of life are still a distant dream. Why is it that each one of us, who considers ourselves to be active citizens of this nation, are not yet able to restore, enforce and protect the rights of ALL our children? If you are outraged by the continuing neglect of India’s children, participate in CRY (Child Rights and You) virtual race for child rights – www.raceforcry.org. It is one of our efforts to bring together people from all walks of life who believe in the rights of children.
There is no training, no sports gear required in this virtual race. Just need your time, creative skills, contribution and your place in the starting line to ensure to children their basic rights of survival, protection, development and participation. Through CRY and it’s 28 years of working with and for children, their families and communities across 18 states in India, you can be assured that your participation can bring about permanent, irreversible change in the lives of children.
With faith and goodwill,
The CRY Team
