CRY believes that children are citizens in their own right, entitled to the full spectrum of human rights. CRY’s mission is to “To enable people to take responsibility for the situation of the deprived Indian child and so motivate them to confront the situation through collective action thereby giving the child and themselves an opportunity to realise their full potential.” CRY ensures through its monitoring systems that the money is optimally deployed and impacts the lives of children.
