Fall 2020 Grant Recipient #2: Miracle Foundation
for November 23, 2020
We are thrilled to announce our 2nd Fall 2020 Grant Recipient!
Thanks to our generous donor community, Miracle Foundation is receiving a $25,000 grant towards their A Family for Every Child Initiative in India. In late March, thousands of children living in orphanages in India – who have family/kin to live with – were returned to their communities with the intention of lessening the spread of COVID-19. The families (mostly single mothers) are daily wage earners, who already struggle to feed their family. Miracle took immediate action to provide food and basic health necessities to this disadvantaged population. In September, the Indian National Commission of Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) officially stated that “You cannot take away the right to a family from a child because of poverty.” In light of this declaration, approximately 200,000 children were impacted. Miracle developed and has been implementing a reunification process for close to three years. Due to COVID-19, the process required a redesign. Miracle has redesigned each of its programs and trained its social workers to implement services remotely. In May, Miracle implemented its Expedited Case Management (ECM) process to ensure children are safely and effectively placed in family care. This process is unique and developed exclusively by Miracle Foundation to be shared and used by others in the child care domain. With the Indian government currently creating policy on Family Based Care and Miracle Foundation providing the know-how, systemic change can occur. This grant will fund this incredible work!
