The COVID19 outbreak is affecting every aspect of all our lives. Unable to go to school and with lowered immunity due to malnutrition and lack of access to healthcare facilities, children are vulnerable due to this pandemic.

But there is always hope when we stand together! CRY America and its Project Partners are doing everything we can to ensure that underprivileged children remain healthy and safe during the lockdown and the months beyond. Our focus is on bringing children's lives back to normal as early as possible, while keeping them safe.

But we cannot do this without YOU.

By helping CRY America raise $20,000, YOU will help us ensure that our children stay healthy and continue to hope for a better tomorrow. Because, as our world's future, that's the very least they deserve.

At CRY America, we're working tirelessly with our project partners to ensure that children are able to get the support they need the most nutrition, healthcare, protection and an education. Here's how YOUR contributions have transformed the lives of our children!


I had always wanted to becoming a nurse. However, because my family was struggling with income, I became a part time daily wage laborer with my mother to help make ends meet.

The pressures were high, and I would have surely dropped out of school if CRY America project DEEP hadn't intervened. The project staff counselled my parents and convinced them to send me to a coaching center run by the project to support my studies.

This extra support changed everything and helped me clear my 10th grade board exams with flying colors! Now, I'm in secondary school continuing my education and keeping my aspiration of becoming a nurse alive!


I have always wanted to get a good education. However, the village that I lived in did not have a school that offered secondary education. So, my sister and I moved to another village to live with our grandparents and continued our studies. I was in 8th grade when I learnt about CRY America supported project PORD (People's Organisation for Rural Development). As part of their door-to-door campaign, they invited me to join the children's collective in the colony too. I was an extremely shy person and didn't have the confidence to speak to anyone apart from my family. Though my grandparents were reluctant to let me join the children's collective, they eventually agreed.

Once I joined the collective, I made sure I participated in every possible activity of the child collective. I found my calling when I learnt about child rights and I decided to help make more children aware of their rights. In two years, I started participating in capacity building programs and eventually became the Secretary of the children's collective. I even visited several schools to speak about children's rights.

Currently, I'm pursuing my B. Tech in computer science engineering. Thanks to my efforts on building awareness on children's rights in my community, I was selected as an Ashoka Youth Venturer. In the next five years, I aim to cover 500 schools and hostels and sensitize children and teachers on child protection and menstrual hygiene management.


As a mother, my world turned upside down when I saw my baby Kishan getting sicker and I didn't even know what was causing it..

We are Sahariya, a small tribe in Shivpuri, Rajasthan. It was only when workers from VSS, a CRY America Project, met us us that I got to know my baby was suffering from malnutrition.

Kishan was connected to nutritional services and given Mahamash oil ayurvedic massage therapy. His weight shot up from 6 kgs to 6.9 kgs and today he is at a healthy weight.

The VSS sisters (workers) saved my son. I look forward to seeing him grow and I'm so hopeful for the future.


I come from a remote village in West Bengal. My father, a daily wage laborer, supported our family of 9. I always dreamt of being financially independent and creating a better life for my family.

When I was 16, a neighbor promised to get me a government job in exchange for some financial help. The job never materialized and I lost all my family's hard-earned savings. Still, I was determined to find work and was delighted when I finally got an interview call. My life would never be the same again. My interviewer held me hostage for 20 days and sexually abused me. When I finally escaped and returned home, I discovered that my father and my elder brother ' the main breadwinners of our family ' had both passed away.

As I was struggling to cope with my trauma, my story was discovered by a CRY America project Sanlaap. They encouraged me to attend life-skills sessions which were a positive influence in my life. They helped me regain my self-esteem and develop a new, hopeful perspective. It was at this juncture that I realized my passion for social justice. I wanted to help other survivors of violence fight for justice, by becoming a lawyer. Sanlaap connected me to a program that prepared young people for a career in law.

Today, I'm a second year student of law. I hope to make a difference through my profession and look forward to becoming financially independent as well! Thanks to CRY America, I'm pursuing my dream of becoming a lawyer and I hope to help people with their legal troubles!


If Kavita, Revathi, Kishan and Sahana had not got the right support at the right time, they would never have been able to achieve all that they have today. YOU can help more children like them get a chance at a brighter future too.

Since 2004, CRY America has impacted 733,684 children and enabled them to achieve their true potential. Today, even with the COVID-19 pandemic, we're trying to continue our work so that vulnerable children do not bear the brunt of this crisis.

Support CRY America to ensure that they stay healthy and continue to hope for a brighter tomorrow.
