Protect India’s daughters from being forced into child marriage

Did you know that 1 in every 3 child brides in the world is from India?

The issues of child marriage and early motherhood have come in the way of millions of underprivileged young girls and their dreams. With the loss of livelihoods during the on-going crisis, this situation will only worsen as more young girls are married off at an early age to ease the family’s financial burden.

CRY is working tirelessly to address the issue by conducting online counselling sessions with adolescent girls, organizing home visits to high risk homes, building awareness on the ill-effects of child marriage among Panchayat leaders & VCPC members, tracking potential cases of impending child marriages and getting help from the police to stop them, connecting parents with MNREGA job opportunities and ensuring that girls are able to go back to school post the lockdown.

But we can’t do this without your support. Donate to CRY, India’s most trusted NGO, to protect underprivileged girls from child marriage. No contribution is too small and will make a big difference by giving India’s daughters a chance at a brighter future in a COVID world.

"I believe that everyone has something to donate-be it in the form of money, love or time. But if the privileged do not spare even a small amount of money for charity, then who will? The knowledge that each dollar will be spent effectively by CRY to solve critical issues brings a smile to my face."

Simron Sokhi, Donor from Singapore

"Changing the lives of children is a continuous process. Nothing can be done in a limited period. As individuals we have to continue to give support by way of financial help, time as well as other resources. I believe in continuity and devotion without deviation. CRY is doing just that."
