According to the UN Convention on Child Rights, all children are

equal, and have human rights such as the right to food, shelter,

health care, education and freedom from violence, neglect and

exploitation. There are about 400 million children under the age of 14

in India. About half of them suffer from malnutrition, illiteracy,

child labor, preventable diseases, abuse and exploitation. What

happens to these children is not just their problem. The whole world

has an interest in helping them grow up to be well-adjusted productive

citizens of tomorrow.

 

Child Rights and You (CRY) is an organization that has been working at

the grassroots level since 1979 to give underprivileged children a

voice in their own future. CRY's goal is to bring lasting change by

understanding and addressing the root causes that keep children

deprived, malnourished, under-developed or exploited - factors like

caste, gender, poverty and adult unemployment. CRY is unique in its

approach and deserves our support. I have been volunteering for CRY

since 2003 as part of the Boston Action Center. This year, like the

last ten years, we organized a 5km CRY Walk in September, and as part

of the event, I have personally pledged to raise $3000 to help towards

CRY volunteers' commitment of raising $125,000 through CRY Walks in 20

cities. I humbly request you to open your heart and wallet and join

me in this grand dream of a world where every child enjoys the

right to a happy and fulfilling childhood.According to the UN Convention on Child Rights, all children are

Seeing small children in rags begging on the streets in India is heartbreaking - yet giving them a few coins does not feel like a solution. So with deep sadness, most of us turn away. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the scale of the problem, but there are ways to help.

I have been volunteering for CRY America in Boston, a partner of Child Rights and You in India, for almost ten years. Founded in 1979, CRY's goal is to bring lasting change by understanding and addressing the root causes that keep children deprived, malnourished, under-developed  and exploited - reasons like poverty, displacement, caste, gender and preventable diseases. CRY's unique rights based approach goes beyond charity and creates and strengthens social structures that will enable children to develop to their full potential. A lot has been done, but much more remains to be done.

We organize a 5km CRY Walk every year, in Boston and about twenty other US cities, to raise funds and awareness of CRY's mission. This year our Boston Walk was held in Sept. and we raised over $5000. I have also pledged to raise an additional $3000 to support CRY this year. Please join me in this cause and let's make a lasting difference in these children's lives. Many thanks for your support!

Warm Regards,

Sanjay
