Join our 'Stay in School' campaign that aims to ensure that 2300 girls overcome these challenges, are educated, and make better choices for themselves, their families and communities.

Some of our best childhood memories are unforgettable - the first day of school, writing on the first page of a new notebook, new pencil boxes, new school uniforms, laughing, playing, even getting punished with friends and sharing tiffin boxes at break-time - going to school has given us all such rich experiences. Many of the successes we enjoy today are due to the education we have received. Yet for thousands of children in India, these are memories they cannot make. In 9 years, with your support, CRY America has ensured that 1089 public schools have been activated, 466 villages have 100% enrollment and 351 schools have 100% retention today and thousands of children have been given education opportunities. But, we still have a long way to go. Take the Pledge to make Education a reality for children - "like" the CRY America facebook page as an affirmation of your commitment that every child goes to school and has their own happy childhood memories.
