GiveLight gives preference to locally run programs that:

  • Provide a home and care for more than 25 full orphans
  • Support orphans living in the community with foster families or relatives
GiveLight also considers applications from:
  • Programs that are in the process of expanding to serve at least 25 full orphans within 12-18 months
  • Innovative programs that meet the needs of orphaned children

GiveLight prioritizes programs that serve children orphaned by natural or man-made disasters.

GiveLight rigorously reviews organizations to ensure transparency and compliance. Organizations should be able to demonstrate how they manage resources and uphold program quality.
