CRY America Volunteer Network

Child Rights Advocacy and Volunteer site



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.

Volunteers form the core of CRY America. They come from different walks of life – university students, professionals, housewives, people working in various companies. Volunteers work among their colleagues, friends, family and local communities to create awareness about the situation of underprivileged children and harness resources ….each contributing in whatever way they can.

The CRY Portland chapter has been recently started,and a lot of events are already planned for this year.

We would be immensely grateful if you too would lend your support. We believe that together, we can create a movement that can steadily, magically gather momentum and irrevocably change children’s lives forever!

To volunteer – sign up here and become part of the Portland group.

Let’s stand up for what is right – Stand up for child rights!

Come, be part of this unique opportunity to create a lasting change in the lives of millions of marginalized children in India, living thousands of miles away from you. We need your support – register for the event, donate, become a fundraiser, help with event sponsorships or become a team captain!
