Invest in the life of a child

About GiveLight Foundation

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.

givelight-missionGiveLight Foundation provides care and support for orphans in countries affected by national disasters, poverty or social unrest. We've established well run and well funded orphanages in Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and are sponsoring many more orphan children in other countries and locally in the Bay Area.
