Our Team

GiveLight Foundation was driven solely by US volunteers up to eight years of operation. Recently, we hired our Web Developer, Operations Manager and Outreach Coordinator to help us scale our impact. We are passionate about the cause and find fulfillment in seeing our children do so well in school and in life. We are working professionals who are high achievers, stay-home moms, retirees and students, all driven by the same dream: to help as many orphans as we possibly can.

Meet the folks who are devoting their time, efforts and talents to make a positive impact in the lives of GiveLight's children. GiveLight would not be a reality today without these dedicated individuals.
