Be the Light

WorldCuisine6 3


We believe that there is light in every human heart. Many supporters have come up with their own ideas to help generate awareness and funds for our cause. Manifest your own light in a way that brings joy and satisfaction to your heart - you too can be a GiveLighter.

Your contribution will enable us to provide the best education, a loving family and a place where children can grow with a strong sense of identity and belonging. Even a little bit goes a long way: $50 pays for a month of school, $100 provides a special dinner for the entire home, $360 sponsors a child's meal for the whole year. All proceeds go to the initiative of your choosing.

Story of Dian Alyan
Founder of GiveLight

A vision to rebuild a future emerged just a few weeks after the December 26, 2004 Asia Tsunami. Our first orphanage in Aceh, Indonesia became a reality only a year later and we have been expanding ever since reaching out to countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Haiti, Sri Lanka and more. Join us in our efforts to give light to as many children around the globe as possible.
