In 1979 Rippan Kapoor  and 6 friends started CRY with Rs 50 around his mother’s dining table

The “link” or enabling position has determined CRY’s strategic choices at every juncture – from the fundraising methods it employs, to the nature of its relationship with the NGOs it partners with.

Although Rippan passed away in 1994, his vision for underprivileged children ensures that CRY continues to grow.

To enable people to take responsibility for the situation of the deprived Indian child and so motivate them to seek resolution through individual and collective action thereby enabling children to realise their full potential

To make people discover their potential for action and change

To enable peoples’ collectives and movements encompassing diverse segments, to pledge their particular strengths, working in partnership to secure, protect and honour the rights of India’s children.
