Child Rights and You America (formerly Child Relief and You) is an independent, non-religious, non-political, 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization in the United States. It works towards restoring basic rights to underprivileged children, especially from India. It is affiliated with Child Rights and You, a non-profit organization in India. CRY focuses mainly on 4 basic rights which were defined by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child(CRC), an international human rights treaty which has been ratified by 192 countries including India.
The CRC is built on certain "foundation principles" that underpin all other children's rights. The CRC confers the following basic rights on all children across the world, without discrimination:
- 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 works to ensure these rights to all categories of underprivileged children, who could be street children, children bonded in labor, children of commercial sex workers, physically and mentally challenged children and children in juvenile institutions.
