There are over 143 million orphans and the majority of them are all alone in the world. GiveLight 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 launched operations in 10 countries supporting 800+ orphans.
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.
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.

The beautiful snowflakes fell gracefully from the cloudy sky of the magnificent city of Istanbul as I strolled down its grand boulevards last winter. I had just finished the daunting task of distributing thousands of blankets to Syrian orphans and refugees. I was overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem: more than 2 million Syrians were refugees in Turkey and half of them were children.
