The best thing about the volunteer experience with The Miracle Foundation in India is that you are allowed to help in the way that you are most comfortable--they way that you can do the most good. Whether it's giving needed resources to growing children, teaching them, or sharing new experiences, your actions are going to provide a lasting hand-up and open their world. You can dive in and play and sing with kids all day, or help organize projects, or use your skills in cooking or plumbing or whatever. The core philosophy behind the TMF is sustainable growth, and as a volunteer you become part of that process.
I was blessed to travel with other Miracle Foundation ambassadors to meet the incredible children of Balgram Poynad. These children were inquisitive, happy, and funny. They were fed delicious, nutritious meals and were in excellent physical condition. Their living conditions were clean and comfortable, and their home mothers were loving and caring. The children discussed their aspirations for their future with no limits on possibilities. The Miracle Foundation has changed the lives of these incredible young people. I hope many others will support this vitally important organization!
The journey that I took with the Miracle Foundation was extraordinary. I was not expecting to go to an orphanage and meet children that was so full of joy . There is no doubt that these kids are loved . Those children was very well taken care of . I know that they are getting an education because we walk them to school . This group of kiddos was very happy and healthy . I got to see first hand exactly how much the donations we make to the Miracle Foundation is providing for these children . I have to say it is very impressing . I will continue to support those children by donating to the Miracle Foundation.
Love lives in the eyes of the Miracle Foundation's children. The kids in the care of TMF are filled with light and joy. They laugh with their stomach muscles, play competitively but fair, dance gracefully and whole-heartedly. They are being raised by hard-working, impressive women who are referred to as house mothers....and mothers are definitely what they are. The model created by The Miracle Foundation is beautifully implemented. It provides these precious people with not only what they need today, but the tools and hope for bright futures. We left them in the most tender of hands, in a place filled with goodness, with mothers and brothers and sisters whose devotion to each other is something that the whole world should be able to see. I recommend you go see it!
I have been donating to them for years now. They are going to do great things for orphans all over the world. Their system is transparent, measurable, and SO obviously working when you visit with the impacted children!!!
This is my fourth trip to India with TMF and I am sure it won't be my last.
I just returned from my third trip with the Miracle Foundation. I also promised one of the girls that I would come back and see her so there is a fourth trip in my future.
The whole experience is amazing - the kids are a joy, the staff at the homes operate with transparency, TMF staff always makes me feel safe and supported in a new place, the other ambassadors are also a huge part of the experience.
We donate monthly with plans to continue that indefinitely.
Highly recommend this charity!
I am a long-time donor (over ten years) to The Miracle Foundation, and my association with their organization and their methodology is a tremendous point of pride for me. Their work defining a measurable, sustainable, effective solution for protecting children's rights has been impressive at every turn. Recently returning from my first trip to one of their homes in India, I can attest first-hand to their success is creating environments where children not only thrive, but have a home. These abandoned and rescued children are joyous, educated, responsible, and actively participate in the management of their own lives. They have futures. Big ones.
I would encourage anyone, anywhere to become involved with, and donate to, The Miracle Foundation.
I run a nonprofit that partners with various nonprofits around the world to bring unique educational experiences to children. We’ve had the fortune of partnering with The Miracle Foundation for several years now to bring STEM education workshops to kids in the homes they support in India. Each experience has been incredible, and I cannot say enough good things about this organization. The staff of the Miracle Foundation are so incredibly committed to these children and passionate about giving them the love and support they need to become healthy, thriving, human beings who get that they matter. If you ever have an opportunity to go on a trip to visit one of their homes, to look these children in the eyes and tell them they matter, to laugh and dance and just experience joy with them… I highly recommend you take it. It will forever change you.

I had the privilege going to an orphanage in Agartala, India with The Miracle Foundation in September this year. I didn't know what to expect. I have never met an orphan in my home country, let alone India.
I met the nicest group of children when I was there. They didn't have much in terms of material possession, but they were loved. They were well-fed. They got good education. The 12 rights of children that The Miracle Foundation believes in really showed at the orphanage. The children probably had sad pasts, but they were so happy at the orphanage.
In the short four days, the children passionately called me "Dada," which means older brother. I don't have any siblings, but had so many littler brothers and sisters that week. I was there to set up a robotics program. I don't know how many lives I changed that week, but it certainly changed mine. It put in perspective how prevailed I am simply because where I live and from.
People say India is incredible, but children were even more so, every single one of them. I can't wait to see them grow up and make India even more incredible.
I had the opportunity to visit an orphanage in northeast India that the Miracle Foundation has invested in, this past month, and the experience was astounding. First, the kids were happy and their happiness was tangible. I clearly could not communicate with any of the children extensively, but every time I looked at any of the children, a big smile would fill their face. It was beautiful! I was so excited to be with the children, and they were just as excited to be with me. The Miracle Foundation has made an impact in the lives of these children that is truly providing all of their 12 rights of a child, but also a happy, clean and loving home.
I was so impressed, and so happy to have spend a few days getting to teach some basic science and robotics concepts to the children. The organization truly cares about every child that walks through the doors of their homes.
They were also very supportive of their volunteers and very thankful for our time and efforts. I will definitely keep on supporting!
I was fortunate enough to join The Miracle Foundation this year on one of their trips to a children's home in India. I was blown away by the quality of life experienced by the 40 young boys living at this home. This home has been a part of TMF for three years, and has made huge improvements in everything they do. The most important part of my trip was seeing the difference between where these children started and where they are now. It goes to show how much of an impact TMF is playing the success of these homes.
In addition to meeting the boys, I also had the opportunity to meet with the founders of the home and some of the generous people who work there. The people involved in this home are truly good people and have devoted their lives to helping children. These are the type of people that make big differences and touch the lives of everyone they meet. My confidence in the organization largely lies in the dedication I saw in those people. With a foundation like that, TMF will have a lot of success and make a huge change in this world.
