Every Child Has Rights

Inspired by the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, we created the Miracle Foundation 12 Rights of the Child, focusing specifically on the rights of orphaned children. These rights are at the heart of everything we do. Every child has rights, and our job is to ensure that even children without parents have the opportunity to realize them. With that in mind, we use 12 Rights of the Child as the foundation for the guidelines and standards of care we provide to orphaned children.


Every child has 12 fundamental rights
The Miracle Foundation exists to ensure
orphaned children realize:
  1. The right to live with a family
  2. The right to a stable, loving, nurturing environment
  3. The right to healthcare and nutrition
  4. The right to clean water and electric power
  5. The right to a quality education
  6. The right to equal opportunities
  7. The right to guidance from a caring adult
  8. The right to be heard and participate in decisions that affect them
  9. The right to be prepared for active and responsible citizenship
  10. The right to protection from abuse and neglect
  11. The right to live in conditions of dignity and freedom
  12. The right to spiritual development
