Supporting orphaned and vulnerable children while bringing about sustainable change that reduces the need for Child Care Institutions (CCIs)

For the past 20 years, Miracle Foundation India has improved the lives of more than 15,000 orphaned and vulnerable children in need and impacted more than 300 CCIs in India.

Our revolutionary Thrive Scale™ methodology is based on the UN Rights of the Child and leverages data and technology to give every child the chance to reach their full potential. Our Child Safeguarding Policy guidelines - based on international safeguarding standards and good practices - serves to protect children from harm, and ensures their best interests.

Miracle Foundation India is an international non-profit organisation for children, with headquarters in New Delhi, Austin, Texas, and New York City. A majority of the work is conducted in India, an epicenter of the global orphan crisis. Our approach is rooted in years of on-the-ground experience, driven by a careful methodology and powered by a deep passion to improve the lives of children and give them a chance to grow up in a family.

We believe in collaboration as we know this work is bigger than any one organization. We are excited to be part of a global network of non - profit organizations leading the worldwide movement to end the need for Child Care Institutions by 2040.

How our founder was inspired to start a non - profit organisation for children.

Miracle Foundation was born on Mother’s Day in 2000, when Caroline Boudreaux set off on a trip around the world and found herself at an Indian CCI in a remote village. She was shocked by the conditions in which the orphaned children lived, but captivated by their strength, beauty and untapped potential. Read Caroline’s Story.

The 12 UN Rights of a Child
are at the heart of everything we do. We work hand-in-hand with local leaders and families to activate each of these rights so children can reach their full potential.
