About CRY

CRY America or Child Rights and You America Inc , a 501c3 nonprofit organization driven by its vision of a just world in which every child has an equal opportunity to develop to his or her full potential. In just 8 years of its existence CRY America has irreversibly transformed the lives of over 358,000 children living across 1,916 rural, tribal and urban communities through the support to 52 Projects. This impact was possible only because of the support that CRY America has received from over 15,000 donors and 500 volunteers, who have given so generously of their time and resources.

The scale of impact that we have been able to accomplish in just 8 years fills us with hope and determination that with increased support we can reach out to many more children. You will be happy to know that 391 villages today have 100% children enrolled in schools, 886 government schools are now functioning where there were none and 372 villages are child labor free today because of your support. Hundreds of underprivileged communities were involved in this process of change.

CRY America’s Pittsburgh chapter was started in July 2003, with 2 people. Today, we are a group of passionate and multi-skilled individuals dedicated to making a difference in the world! We are especially concerned about the situation of underprivileged children and want to do our best to restore to them their basic rights so they can be guaranteed a normal childhood. We do a lot of events in Pittsburgh to raise awareness and fundraising for supporting the various projects in US and India.
