Projects in USA

CRY America's Child Rights model of change is based on its experience and expertise of working with the issues of Indian children. It recognizes that there are several expert organizations in the USA that have a better understanding and greater expertise of working with the situation of US children. CRY America endeavors to support the issues of US children through such expert organizations. Given our understanding and research, CRY America will deploy its resources within the following framework to impact the lives of children in the USA:

a.    Supported Projects should have a meaningful and sustainable impact in the lives of US children - specially reaching out to the most underprivileged and under-served children.

b.    Supported projects should be working on critical issues of need and deprivation. Our current issue priorities will be the issue of Child Abuse & Neglect and the issue of Child Health.

c.     Selection criteria for US Projects will be as follows:
i.      Organizations with 501c3 approval
ii.     Organizations working with underprivileged/ under-served US children
iii.    Organizations working on critical issues affecting US children
iv.    Organizations with strong parents & community outreach
v.     Organizations should be inclusive + non religious + non partisan
vi.    Organizations that are working with the US government to improve legislations/ policies/ programs for children or those that work towards ensuring the effective implementation of federal/state programs for children
vii.    Organizations track record should include presentation of their achievements/ impact, publish their annual reports and are  transparent with their organizational information on their website

d.    US Grant Allocations & Approvals: Of the total Grants deployed to US Projects:
i.     80% will be allocated to national organizations - to be approved by the Board
ii.    20% will be allocated through CRY America Action Centers - to be approved by the CEO & Board Volunteer Representative.
