We know that people deep down want to make a real difference in the world. Most just don’t know how. That’s why we focus on empowering generous donors, like you, to look out for orphans who have no one else.
Many children are in orphanages because their families are poor and can’t afford to feed or educate them. This is no reason to be institutionalized. To address this, we partner with key organizations to strengthen communities and families—to keep children out of institutions.
We train, educate and equip orphanages in their transformation process from orphanage to Center for Excellence. Centers for Excellence offer community support in a variety of ways, creating a path for children to remain or reunite with their birth families, or to find a loving home through kinship care, foster care, adoption and other family care options.
We work with a “Child First” approach to provide a loving home, a quality education and a promising future to each and every orphan. Because when you bring together those who have, with those who have not—miracles happen.
There are 8 million orphans living in institutions, according to UNICEF. Many of them live in orphanages with deplorable conditions, where their most basic needs are not met. The children are often hungry, scared, confused and lonely.
Most institutional orphanages are overcrowded and dilapidated, some rife with corruption, neglect and abuse. Even when managed by people with good intentions, orphanages often lack the necessary funds, resources and knowledge to properly provide for the children in their care.
That’s why we meticulously evaluate orphanages on the 12 Rights of the Child and transition them into Centers for Excellence. This gives the children a safe, loving place to thrive until they transition to family care. It’s time we let the world’s orphans—and their caregivers—know we’ve got high expectations for them. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in their lives by empowering each and every one of them to reach their full potential.
Change an orphan’s life today. Become a monthly donor and help us fund all the orphans we support. With just $50 or $100 per month you can help make a miracle for each of these precious children.
The ultimate goal of the Miracle Foundation is to find a loving family for every orphaned child. That means we explore every avenue to reunite children with a parent or relative, if possible. In fact, we have reunited approximately 25% of our children with families. We do this by allocating resources to more effectively facilitate family-based care options, including adoption, and working with the community to ensure that excellent family support services are in place.
While a child is in transition to a family, we guarantee:
- A quality education
- A safe and loving environment
- Personalized care so they are healthy and “known”
