About Our Cause: Miracle Foundation India is a non-profit organization that brings life-changing care to the children without homes. Our mission is simple. Miracle Foundation India stands for group homes for children and helps them thrive in real time. We've created a measurable, repeatable and systematic method to ensure that children 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 children’s homes into Centers for Excellence where children thrive instead of reside
Started in 2011, the organization is dedicated to empowering orphans 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.
