Our Projects



Our work is driven by the altruistic love for our merciful Creator and the desire to help vulnerable orphans around the world. We build beautiful homes and futures for them, focusing on areas that are affected by natural disasters, poverty, and war.  We began with one home in Indonesia and are now in 11 countries, supporting more than 1,000 children.

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 home in Aceh, Indonesia became a reality only a year later and it serves as a sanctuary for children traumatized by that tragedy. We have been expanding globally ever since, reaching Pakistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Morocco and more. Join us in our efforts to give light and love to as many children around the globe as possible.
