Child Rights and You (CRY) is an organization to help poor and deprived Children in India. Branches of CRY are spread all over the county, and the Kolkata branch has attended an Annual International book fair last week on the 4th and 7th February. Amidst this gala event, the CRY corner drew great attention as people came forward curiously to know about the campaign.

As the people got impressed by the working of CRY they pledges to help support to vote for child The "Pin Your Vote" game attracted many young voters and children alike. A total of 900 signatures were collected from enthusiastic supporters who pledged their support to vote for child, they have also said a special thanks to Mr Rajib Banerjee of Zero Comics who, was in partnership with CRY, and extended his support by taking active interest and facilitating the set up of the corner.

This shows that people are interested in helping others but the problem is, that they don't find the right platform to do so. And CRY has provided that necessary platform where such people get a right place to help the people.

This great initiative called 'CRY' was started by Rippan Kapur and his six friends in 1979 with just Rs. 50 around his mother's dining table. They felt that something needed to be done to improve the situation of the underprivileged Indian child. Uncharacteristically, given their backgrounds and motivations, they chose not to find a grassroots-level implementing organization working directly with and for underprivileged children.
