“Where there is no vision, there is no hope”
A vision seen in unison doesn’t take long to come true.
Our dream of a world where all children have their rights to live, learn, grow, play and be protected is within reach as it is guided by the collective conviction and action of over 10,000 donors, 500 volunteers and 41 Project Partners of CRY America. This belief was further strengthened by individuals who participated in our MVC Campaign.
Our thanks go out to all MVC participants and to our event sponsors - Zee TV and Citibank
