CRY America’s development philosophy is based on a holistic focus on child rights. It’s based on the belief that the delivery of these rights is inextricably linked to the situation of the child’s immediate family and community they are a part of. So, to take a simplistic example, if a child needs to be able to go to school, his parents need to be able to afford to not let him work. Thus a child’s ability to be educated is directly linked to the livelihood issue of his family and his community. We believe that change brought about in this manner is more sustainable and meaningful to children’s lives.
