Seeing small children in rags begging on the streets in India is heartbreaking - yet giving them a few coins is not a solution. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the scale of the problem, but there are ways to help. I have been volunteering for CRY Boston for 10 years. CRY's unique rights based approach goes beyond charity and strengthens social structures that enable children to develop to their full potential. Join CRY America and make a difference!
The basic difference between other organizations and CRY is that they involve the parents and the entire community towards impacting the child. Community groups are made aware and empowered to tackle their own problems, instead of outsiders coming to ‘help’ them. CRY’s approach is holistic concept, ensuring change that lasts for generations.
