Being one of the top NGOs working for girl education, CRY is dedicated to empowering girls since its inception. We collaborate with grassroots project partners to bring about sustainable change at all levels, ensuring every girl’s right to education is fulfilled.
As a top NGO for girl education, we promote and support girls through 5 key focus areas:
We educate communities and parents about the value of education creating a positive mindset towards education for all children.
We promote well-being through support groups by fostering agency and confidence. These collectives support girls in pursuing their aspirations and create an enabling environment for their growth.
Our drives aim to change mindsets and raise awareness about the negative consequences of harmful practices like child marriage and labour.
We are working to create a better support system for girls, aiming to reduce the stigma around periods through open conversations, educating communities, and providing hygiene facilities and supplies.
We provide parents with crucial information on government schemes and monetary benefits for raising daughters. This knowledge helps overcome financial barriers and encourages investment in girls’ education.
The above numbers highlight the urgent need to help for girl education to ensure proper health and nutrition for children.

Meet Namrata Biradar, a girl from our Latur project in Maharashtra, who has scored 98% in her 10th board examination. Not only that, her trail-blazing act has inspired other girls in the community to excel in their exams as well. Watch what the star in the making has to say about her journey in this video:
I really appreciate the work which CRY is doing in the rehabilitation of the not so fortunate children, especially during this pandemic. I wish CRY continues to do the good work and I’m grateful to be given an opportunity to do my little bit.
I am of the view that no child should be deprived of getting an education because of the shortage of money. Since CRY helps underserved children, I support their efforts because every drop counts!
CRY is doing very good work. Children are the future of the country and giving them an education will make India shine bright.
