||CRY... the initials stand
for Child Relief and You. In spirit, it stands for hope,
for possibilities, for the conviction that collective
action by individuals and organisations can restore to
our nation's underprivileged children the rights that
are owed to them.
In 1979, seven friends led by Rippan Kapur, met around
a dining table, with the belief that something needed
to be done to improve the situation of the underprivileged
Indian child. Each contributed seven rupees each and
a movement called CRY had begun. Today, 23 years later,
that movement for children has made a profound difference
to the lives of more than one million children. And
it has involved over a 100,000 individuals and organisations,
who have through CRY, made that difference possible.
CRY is living proof that when enough people believe
that change is possible, change is indeed possible.
That individuals and organisations can, within the context
of their lives and work, make a difference. That no
situation is so harsh that it cannot be improved when
enough people care.
