Give children the gift of education

by Child Rights and You


Education is the basic need for a better future. However, nearly 50% of children in India do not get a chance to complete their education. Many of them drop out of school due to lack of adequate facilities in schools including no proper toilets, drinking water etc to teachers not attending school regularly. CRY works with communities to not only connect children to school but also ensure they are retained in school and can complete their education. Thus paving the way fora brighter future.

Though enrollment at the primary level is high, a large number of children drop out of school after primary level. Schools lack basic facilities and parents are not aware of the role education plays to help them break out of the cycle of poverty. Many children come from families where they are first generation learners and therefore get very little encouragement or help at home to continue their studies.Children who have dropped out of school and become victims of child labour or child marriage


CRY works with children's families and with school authorities to ensure that children get access to the education.CRY not only works towards improving infrastructure in schools but also works to change mindsets and attitudes about education. In specific cases,CRY project teams also run centers which provide children with the much needed additional academic help and motivation-so that they do not drop out of school. CRY also work with children who dropped out so that they can be mainstreamed.

Long-Term Impact

Since the CRY team works to activate services and change mindsets - the changes that are brought about are permanent. Communities not only demand improvement in facilities in schools but they also regularly monitor to ensure that the school maintains these standards. Families and children alike understand the importance of education and therefore attitudes change permanently as well.
