Since its inception in May 2000, The Miracle Foundation has been caring for orphaned children throughout rural India, and we have significantly impacted the lives of more than 1,000 children. During this time, we have:
- Fed, clothed, sheltered, and loved more than 1,000 orphaned children.
- Trained housemothers, many who had never had any prior formal training.
- Established a set of standards — inspired by the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child — that when implemented, empowers orphans to reach their full potential.
- Created and launched The NEST Method, a revolutionary approach that incrementally improves the standard of care in orphanages, thereby transforming them into loving homes where children thrive.
- Vaccinated hundreds of children
- Fought life-threatening illnesses, such as typhoid, tuberculosis, anemia, measles, etc.

- Built bathrooms, wells, kitchens, prayer halls, and computer labs and installed playscapes, water purification systems, and organic gardens, all of which have improved the lives of hundreds of little children.
- Taken hundreds of orphaned children on field trips to parks, beaches, zoos, carnivals, cricket matches, and ice cream parties.
- Instituted children’s clubs, through which children living in institutional settings learn to have a voice, take responsibility, and are empowered to play an integral part in their own destiny.
