MUMBAI: Miracle Foundation India, a non-profit organization based in New Delhi, empowers children without parental care to reach their full potential.
Through a Centre for Excellence in Maharashtra, Miracle Foundation impacts the lives of more than 800 children supported by 22 participating NGOs, in partnership with representatives from district WCD departments from 8 districts in the Marathwada region in the state of Maharashtra.
Nivedita DasGupta, Country Head says, “Every child has the right to education, healthcare, family-based care. The Centre is a step toward fulfilling the dream of reaching the 31 million orphaned children.
It’s method is based on the United Nations Rights of the Child, which 193 countries around the world have agreed that all children need and deserve.
Foundation activates the Rights of the Child so that every child can reach his or her full potential. The organisation provides family-based care, a quality education, healthcare and more to thousands of children across India.
Miracle Foundation recently etched a paradigm shift in their approach in order to scale up and help even more children. The new approach leverages a train-the-trainer model to create Centres for Excellence.
The Centre for Excellence program is a one-year program, which was kick-started with a launch celebration on 24thJuly 2017 in Aurangabad. Socio-Economic Development Trust (SEDT), and the Government of Maharashtra came together to create the first Centre for Excellence in the State. The program plays a significant role in building the capacity of government-run and NGO-run children’s homes in the Aurangabad division.
Since the launch of the Centre for Excellence, Miracle Foundation has conducted two successful training programmes in the months of September and October 2017.
