Welcome to GiveLight

Our Projects



Our work is driven by one word and that word is love - love for our merciful Creator and for the most vulnerable of His creation, the orphans. Our mission is to build beautiful homes and futures for them, focusing on areas that are affected by natural disaster, poverty and war.  We began with one home in Aceh, Indonesia supporting 50 orphans and now we are in 11 countries impacting/building the lives of almost 1000 children.

Be the Light



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.

Story of Dian Alyan
Founder of GiveLight

A vision to rebuild a future emerged just a few weeks after the December 26, 2004 Asia Tsunami. Our first home in Aceh, Indonesia became a reality only a year later and it serves as a sanctuary for children traumatized by that tragedy. 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.
