givelight children orphans indonesia scholarship graduation

At GiveLight, we focus on providing high quality education for all of our children. Our goal at a minimum is to get them to finish High School.

While all our children go to public schools, we give them access to world class education by giving them computer lessons, English lessons and Quranic studies. We also do regular competitions such as 'Speech Competition', 'Math Marathon', chess, etc. which helps build their self-confidence, ability to speak in public and to think critically.

We also currently provide scholarships for 10 orphan children in the Bay Area who are attending a private school.  The cost per child is $5000/year for tuition and $200 for books and supplies. We also have 5 children from our Aceh home who have now gone to college:  Rahmat Miko, Mahyana Sari, Sultan Arifin, Nika Ayunara and Ratna Mutia. 

You can make an enduring impact in shaping the lives and destinies of the orphan children, by donating to an existing scholarship fund or by establishing your own.

Here's the process

1.  Choose a name for your scholarship fund. It could be your family name or names of individuals who have made a lasting impact in your life. For example:

  • honor your parents who made sacrifices for you and helped you become the successful individual you are today.
  • honor a mentor in your life who put you on the path to happiness.
  • honor a teacher who believed in you.
  • honor your own precious children by setting up a scholarship to which they too can contribute to. Your children can learn from your example and continue on with your Family Scholarship for generations to come!

2. Determine if the fund is to support local students in the United States or globally at any of our international orphanages.

  • For local students we would suggest you start with an annual commitment of $1000. You will get a report about how the child you are sponsoring is doing and have the opportunity to meet him/her in person if you so desire. You are free to decide to either continue or stop your support after one year.
  • For a global scholarship fund we would like you to start with a $500 contribution with no annual commitment. We will send you reports on how your fund is making the difference.

3. Once your scholarship fund is setup, its time to reach out to your family and friends and encourage them to make contributions to your scholarship fund. You can continue to make contributions to your fund at any time to help it grow and reach out to the educational needs of as many orphan children as possible.
