about Our Cause: Miracle Foundation India is a non-profit organization that brings life-changing care to the world of children without parental care in India. Our mission is simple. Miracle Foundation India stands for children without parental care and helps them thrive in real time. We’ve created a measurable, repeatable and systematic method to ensure that children without parental care are educated, fed, loved and safe. At the same time, we explore every avenue to reunite them with their parents or relatives, when possible. Our method:
- Ensures organizations meet the 12 Rights of the Child and rise to international standards
- Guides leaders to resettle children with a caring, responsible relative or family—and help them stay together
- Transitions orphanages into Centers for Excellence where children thrive instead of reside
Started in 2011, the organization is dedicated to empowering children without parental care to reach their full potential. Today, we support thousands of children without parents, from the hinterlands of Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Telangana, Kerala and Madhya Pradesh to the far-flung areas of Tripura.
Our goal is for every child to live in a loving family; to become a healthy, happy, income-producing person—and experience a true sense of belonging.
