Mission Statement

To enable people to take responsibility for the situation of the deprived child, especially Indian, and so motivate them to confront the situation through collective action thereby giving the child and themselves an opportunity to realise their full potential.

Description

CRY America is CRY, Child Rights and You America Inc, a 501c3 nonprofit 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 will 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 Pittsburgh Action center was started in July 2003, with 2 people. Today, it has grown to a core group of passionate and multi-skilled individuals. The team has garnered support from institutions, local groups, businesses and individuals in the region. It has partnered with like-minded organizations involved in community development to foster support.

Since our inception, the people of Pittsburgh - "America's Most Livable City" have been a great support and our core group will continue to work towards the cause. In addition to the core group, we have a large set of volunteers - college students, young professionals, retirees - all coming together for a common cause, to raise awareness and funds. Apart from regular meetings and events, we are a young professional group that has fun sessions too, like monthly dinners and picnics!!
