CRY America is CRY, Child Rights and You America Inc, a 501c3 non profit that works towards restoring to underprivileged children, especially Indian, their basic rights to survival, protection, development and participation. At CRY America, we believe in creating a peoples' movement to make a lasting change to children’s lives. We believe that each of us as individuals and organizations can make a difference. All it takes is the belief that “Change is possible, because I’ll make it possible”. CRY America’s strength lies in its supporters – our volunteers, donors and project partners who have come together to change the situation of underprivileged children.

Join us for a walk for the CRY Charlotte Walk for Child Rights on October 19th 2013. 

There are many children in our world who need our help in standing up for their rights. With India having the largest number of child laborers in the world and a prevalence in child malnutrition, gender discrimination and a lack of education of children, CRY (Child Rights and You) America's role in assisting children in need becomes that much more vital. Our action center in Charlotte is proud to participate in the 2013 Walk for Child Rights which brings attention to the needs of children and helps to provide sustainable change. Join us and make a difference as all proceeds go to CRY America projects (View this link for details http://america.cry.org/site/our_projects/projects_we_support/).
