CRY is committed to changing the lives of underprivileged children and so, our work has focused on socially deprived communities in the remotest corners of India. We focus on changing behaviors and practices at the grassroots level and influencing policy at a systemic level - thereby creating an ecosystem where children are made the nation’s priority. Through our strategic engagement we influence government institutions, civil society, private sector and individuals to contribute to ensure child rights and respect children's voices. Today, CRY works across 19 states in India and has impacted the lives of over 3 million children. We have 4 key goal areas, in accordance with the fundamental tenets of the Child Rights Convention, which are critical to children’s wellbeing: • Education: Ensuring that children go to school and complete their education. • Health & Nutrition: Increasing access to proper nutrition and quality healthcare. • Safety & Protection: Addressing issues like child labour, child marriage, trafficking and abuse. • Child Participation: Creating an environment where children's voices are heard and considered.
