GiveLight Foundation is a non-profit humanitarian relief organization, established in Sunnyvale, California, USA in January 2005 by a group of young professionals. The foundation seeks to create durable orphanages and provide orphan care in response to natural disasters and extreme condition, like poverty and war. Since inception, GiveLight has been able to operate primarily using volunteer talents in the US to generate awareness and funds for our global projects. Inspired by Islamic values we strive to help orphans across the globe regardless of nationality, race or religion.
Our mission is to build and sustain beautiful homes and provide our children with long term, high quality education. We strive to recreate a loving family, a sense of belonging and strong identity/self esteem. We do this by making sure our staff on the ground has the highest moral standard and share our love and passion for the cause. We have family/relatives close to each home who go to visit often and unannounced. We also send volunteers from the US to stay at our homes and teach them different skills.
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’ve been expanding ever since. Read more about how we began and our journey so far.

GiveLight Foundation is driven solely by US volunteers up to eight years of operation. We recently hired our Web Developer and a Project Manager to help us scale our impact. We are passionate about the cause and find fulfillment is seeing our children do so well in school and in life. We are working professionals who are high achievers, stay-home moms, retirees and students, all driven by the same dream: to help as many orphans as we possibly can.
Over the past seven years, Givelight Foundation has done presentations in various schools, institutions and major companies such as Apple and Google. The goal was to raise awareness about our work and to inspire action. Here's the highlight of where we have been invited to speak. We do not charge honorarium for the speaker but suggest a donation be made to Givelight Foundation. To invite a speaker please send an email to email@example.com.
Check out the latest GiveLight news and read through media articles that have featured us. Our work for sure is getting noticed and appreciated. We hope the news of our cause keeps spreading and motivating more people to support us.
The model we follow is a successful one, where we combine our passion, business skills and a well defined mission. We started with a small project in Aceh, Indonesia and have been able to implement the same principles in other countries. We plan to scale that model globally until we establish more homes in every continent of the world.
