CRY Overseas volunteers have undertaken some unique approaches to support various CRY campaigns and initiatives.
17 year olds efforts for a child labour free village
‘If I could raise 40000 INR, I could free all the children of a village from child labour, I decided to stand up and take action.’
These are the inspiring words of Unmesh Datta, a 17 year old from Sharjah, UAE. A very determined Unmesh discussed about the situation of underprivileged children in India at various platforms from get-togethers, family dinners and at parties. Inspiring people to contribute towards ensuring a child labour free village.
With consistent efforts he soon raised Rs.40,000/- (INR) and shared it with CRY.
Cricket for Change
The 15th Annual Children Cricket Event “DNV CRYcket” was organized by Friends of CRY Club – Kuwait on 30 March 2013. It was pure fun and everything done at the event was for a noble cause – to help the underprivileged children in India in our own humble way. You too can join hands with FOCC by becoming a volunteer and/or an associate member. For details, events and photos, visit www.focckwt.org
