Child Rights Walkathon


SUGAR LAND:Millions of children can only dream of having the basic rights to live, learn, play and grow. The United Nations Convention on the rights of the child grants children four basic human rights: the right to survival, development, participation and protection. CRY supports organizations in India and the US and has transformed the life of over 450,000 children.

With a vision of a just world in which all children have equal opportunities to develop to their full potential, CRY (Child Rights & You)  works to raise awareness and support for underprivileged children.
