Welcome Balgram Shel Pimpalgaon!

Inspired by the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, we created The Miracle Foundation Rights of the Child - focused specifically on the needs of orphan children. These 12 rights are at the heart of everything we do at The Miracle Foundation.


While every child is born with rights, our job is to ensure the children in our care have the opportunity to realize them. With that in mind, we use The Miracle Foundation Rights of the Child as the foundation for the guidelines and standards of care we are providing to orphan children.

The 12 Rights of Every Child

Who We Are

Founded on Mother’s Day 2000, The Miracle Foundation is a Charity Navigator four-star rated, multi-national nonprofit organization, based in Austin, TX. We are implementing a world-changing idea for orphans everywhere - empowering orphans to reach their full potential by revolutionizing the way orphanages are run, funded and managed.


Inspired by the children we serve, we’re a group of business leaders, educators and social workers who are governed by a world-class board of directors. Together, and through much trial and error, we developed a proven, step-by-step method for turning institutional orphanages into loving homes where children thrive.


Our mission is to empower orphans to reach their full potential, one child at a time.

What We Do

The Miracle Foundation turns struggling, institutional orphanages into stable, loving, nurturing homes where children can thrive and truly change the story of their lives. We partner with existing orphanages to implement our proven and systematic process for providing a home where ALL the fundamental needs and rights of growing children are met - from the day they arrive until the day they graduate into adulthood.


We are currently working with orphanages in rural India where our experienced staff works hand-in-hand with orphanages to evaluate their needs, develop meaningful operational and financial plans, and put those plans into practice - with the appropriate levels of funding, training & management, ongoing assessment, and love & care.

Ways To Help

The children living in the orphanages in India need our help TODAY. As with any household, we manage monthly bills for our homes, and so the most important way people can help is by becoming a monthly sponsor. It costs approximately $100 per month to fully provide for one child in our homes - and ensure they have all they need to thrive and achieve their full potential.


Through monthly sponsorship, one-time gifts, planned giving or volunteering your time you can help make an enormous difference in the life of these amazing children. Help us champion change by raising awareness and investing in these little miracles.
