WELCOME TO BAY AREA ACTION CENTER
CRY America works towards restoring to underprivileged children, especially Indian, their basic rights to survival, protection, development and participation. We believe that each of us as individuals can make a difference. All it takes is the belief that "Change is possible, because I'll make it possible". CRY America's strength lies in its supporters – our volunteers, donors, media and project partners who have come together to change the situation of underprivileged children.
CRY Bay Area was established in 2002 and is committed to care for the rights and happiness of children with an aim to raise funds and spread awareness about children's rights in the Bay Area. We believe that our dear Bay Area can work together and be able to change the lives of millions of children and through them, the future of this world! Lets join hands to make this world a better place for the children to grow up and live in! We invite high school students, college students, working professionals, retirees, homemakers and others to join us - volunteer, donate, attend events, and spread the word. Please feel free to get in touch with us to find out different ways in which you can "Stand Up For Child Rights" in the true sense.

"In our society, Children's rights are compromised every day, especially in the third world with child abuse activities like child labor and child trafficking. Children cannot stand up for their right when their rights are compromised. I believe they need every help they can get. I want to "Stand up for Child Rights" so children around the world always feel safe. I have been with CRY since 2005 when I first joined as volunteer for University of Kentucky CRY Student Chapter. I was elected as the President for the Chapter and I raised 5000$ for CRY. I have moved to Bay area in 2007 and I have been volunteering since then for CRY Bay Area and support the cause of uplifting the underprivileged children in US and India. In 2013 joined the CRY America Exec Team to help with the US Grants role."
"We have been volunteering for CRY America for over 7 years now. Having personally visited projects supported by CRY and having been amazed at the kind of impact it has had on those communities gives us the motivation to continue doing our little part in this huge movement for Child Rights to ensure sustainable change in the lives of children! Different children’s issues are so connected that we don't believe they can be resolved in isolation, thus deserving a more holistic approach. We strongly believe in CRY’s approach of addressing root causes, a lot of times bringing change in the entire community (not only the children) in the process of solving children's issues like illiteracy, healthcare and/or discrimination."
