GiveLight Foundation's Global Projects 

It started with a burning desire to save the lives of Indonesian children who were made orphans by the 2004 South Asian Tsunami.  Little did we know then that within a span of only a few years GiveLight Foundation would reach out to many more orphan children around the world.  Today, because of your generous support and trust in our work, we have established programs in 10 countries, nurturing more than eight hundred children!

Below you can review our projects in different countries and see for yourself just how far we have come. Our children are so grateful for your support. 

With over 153 million orphans around the world, we are now aiming to help nurture 10,000 children. We believe with your help we will be able to reach this lofty goal. Together, let's go further!

Sri Lanka HomeSri Lanka was also affected by the 2004 tsunami. As we started our projects in Indonesia, Pakistan and Bangladesh, we were approached by a family from Sri Lanka who shared our passion for serving orphans. The family donated the land and a partnership was formed with the shared philosophy of providing a secure and loving home for 50 children.
