Dear ,

Sisters Ambika and Malabika's dreams were shattered when they were forced to drop out of school. Project SSDC worked with the school authorities, parents and children to resolve the issue and the girls were eventually re-enrolled in school. View this video to see the change you have enabled through CRY America and Project SSDC.

The CRY Walk is in progress across 15 cities and we look forward to your participation. Join the CRY Walk by becoming a Fundraiser or Team Captain or simply walking for child rights! Click here to join the event.

Thank You for giving wings to the dreams of thousands of children.

With best wishes,

Shefali Sunderlal



Sundarban Social Development Centre (SSDC) is working in 47 villages in the hinterlands of Sundarbans, West Bengal to bring holistic change in the lives of children. From enrolling children into schools, to preventing child labor and child marriages; ensuring nutritious food is served at schools to ensuring malnourished children have access to regular healthcare.

Addressing children's issues here is the call of the hour and work is in progress to ensure that 1,158 children receive 100% immunization, 66 malnourished children attain normal health and 210 drop out children are re enrolled in schools.

We need your support to fund the work of Project SSDC and give wings to the dreams of thousands of children at Sundarbans!

Rajinia Khatun, a bright little girl, lives in Ramchandrapur village with her parents. Her father makes a living by selling waste materials.

Things were a little different for Rajinia as a baby. At 16 months, she was weak, unable to walk and take a proper a meal. Rajinia was one of the many malnourished children identified by Project SSDC. They referred her to the public health center where she was administered necessary immunizations and healthcare. The health workers advised Rajinia's mother about the importance of proper hygiene and gave her cooking demonstrations to help address the nutritional needs of the child.

Today, Rajinia loves to go to school and play with her friends and is active like children her age ought to be. View this video to see how the lives of children have changed, because of support received from individuals like you.

Support us to ensure many more children like Rajinia have a healthy start in life.
