The Global Goals are a set of 17 commitments made by 193 world leaders to end extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change by 2030.
In our work with vulnerable children, we are proud to focus on the following six areas.
HEALTHY CHILDREN AND FAMILIES = DECREASED POVERTY
As part of our every-expanding reunification program, we work to link families with available schemes and services to improve outcomes. As of this writing, we’ve linked 502 families, but this number is growing quickly.
QUALITY EDUCATION IS CRITICAL TO OUR WORK
It’s not enough to return children to family if they drop out of school. Miracle Foundation ensures all children are attending school, providing tablets and supplies for remote learning if necessary, and following up with coordinators to ensure attendance and good performance.
GIRLS DESERVE THE SAME TREATMENT AS BOYS
In areas where boys and girls are not treated equally, Miracle works to ensure that all girls are treated with the same care shown to their brothers. This involves eliminating forced marriage and monitoring safety. We also actively promote girls and women’s participation in our programs.
WORK AND OPPORTUNITY HELP FAMILIES THRIVE
In all that we do, we recognize the dignity of work and the power of opportunity. This includes providing career counseling for those who need it and connecting to job opportunities for caregivers. In our Youth for Social Impact program, we make sure participants are paid a fair wage.
CHILD SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY
As a part of any interventions we are involved in, we make sure at-risk children are safe, separated from any perpetrators, appropriate authorities are contacted, and counseling is offered. We also offer child protection trainings for children, staff, and families on all abuse cases.
KEEPING KIDS CONNECTED GIVES EVERYONE A CHANCE
One of the goals under “partnerships” is to strengthen the science, technology and innovation capacity for least developed countries. Our “Keep Kids Connected” program delivers tablets and internet to youth who have no access to these critical tools.
There are endless ways to impact the Global Development Goals.
Partner with us and we’ll show you how.
Whether you have time, contacts or resources, these children need all of us.
