Welcome to GiveLight

Our Projects



Our work is driven by the 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 12 countries, supporting more than 1,000 children.

Dian Alyan, CEO/Founder

Dian Alyan has lived a richly rewarding global life as a brilliant student, world traveler, and highly successful executive at Procter & Gamble. After losing 40 relatives in the 2004 tsunami, she established GiveLight Foundation with a mission to uplift the lives of orphans worldwide. What began as one home for 50 children has now expanded to support over 1,000 orphans in 11 countries globally. Dian's work has garnered humanitarian and leadership awards; speaking engagements at prominent universities, Fortune 500 companies, podcasts, radio and television programs; and articles in major publications such as Newsweek and Huffington Post.


Story of Dian Alyan
Founder of GiveLight

A vision to rebuild a future emerged just a few weeks after the tragic December 26, 2004, Asia Tsunami. Our first home in Aceh, Indonesia became a reality just one year later, serving as a sanctuary for children traumatized by the tsunami. 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.
