Education is the single most important factor in breaking the cycle of poverty. With proper education and training an orphan is empowered to become a healthy, happy, income-producing person.
Unfortunately, the quality of education in government schools is poor and school aid is limited. Institutional orphanages do not focus on education beyond Class 10 (Age 16) which results in children dropping out of school, living on the streets or, at best, picking up petty jobs. Their future is bleak.
In a Miracle Foundation home, all orphans stay in school until they are 18 and then have the opportunity to continue with vocational training or higher education. Many of the children are receiving scholarships to fund their college and transform the story of their lives.
