BBH to design creative communications and digital solutions for CRY

MUMBAI: Child rights organisation CRY - Child Rights and You - has appointed BBH to develop their creative communications and digital media solutions.

The agency has been brought on-board at a time when CRY is embarking on its own mission to engage with a younger audience, especially through the digital space. The mandate spans the spectrum of communication solutions - from overall communications strategy to digital initiatives and engagement strategy for CRY’s operations in India as well as overseas.

CRY Director - Resource Mobilisation and Volunteer Action Yogita Verma said, “Creating brand awareness and mobilising people for the cause of child rights is a challenge, particularly when limited resources need maximum impact. The digital space is one such area where CRY can engage with its target audience, and BBH’s specialisation in digital media and creative tools in the digital space will help CRY reach out to a wider audience.”

She added that CRY’s communication mandate is to raise awareness and thereby action for children in India for whom a happy, healthy childhood is not a natural consequence and the NGO felt that BBH is not only extremely skilled at what it does, but is also truly passionate about children and committed to ensuring the children a future filled with hope.

BBH India Managing Partner Subhash Kamath said, "It is not often in advertising that one gets a chance to use one‘s skills and talent for a real cause; something that directly impacts society, especially children. We are proud to partner CRY on their journey and we have tremendous respect for what they do. All of us at BBH are looking forward to working on some groundbreaking strategies for them.”

BBH Communications, part of the Publicis Groupe, was launched in India in 2009 and has grown to be a 65-people strong organisation with a portfolio of clients like Unilever, Marico, Diageo, Skoda, Red Bull, Google, World Gold Council, Times Group and Acer.

Established in 1979 in Mumbai, CRY was among the first indigenous Indian NGOs working for the rights of children in India. Since then, the organisation has grown to a national institution, present in over 23 states and reaching out to almost a million children every year. For over three decades, CRY has been committed to making a lasting change in the lives of Indian children by ensuring their right to live, learn, grow and play – in short, every child’s right to a happy childhood.
