How We Work to ensure Child Rights
At CRY America, we focus on the 4 basic rights of children. In 1992, India ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Charter of Child Rights (CRC) is built on the principle that "ALL children are born with fundamental freedoms and ALL human beings have inherent rights". The UN Charter sets international standards for the rights of children and confers the following basic rights to children across the world:
- the right to survival - to life, health, nutrition, name and nationality
- the right to development - to education, care, leisure, recreation
- the right to protection - from exploitation, abuse, neglect
- the right to participation - to expression, information, thought and religion
CRY America and its partners are dedicated to building a just society for children. We believe that doing so requires concerted action by all sectors - state, market and civil society. CRY America's operating model, therefore, is based on building a cross-sectoral coalition that includes individuals, corporations, the media, the government and development partners who serve children in need.
