At GiveLight, we focus on providing high-quality and long-term education for all our children.

 In 2005, we envisioned our goal to provide a solid foundation for our children to rise to their full potential throughout their lives. One of the ways to accomplish this goal is through providing our children a good education.

Here’s how you can be a part of this goal. We are dividing funds into two distinct categories.

1. Scholarship for K-12

All of our children attend school which we currently provide scholarships for from kindergarten to high school. The cost varies by country, but on average it ranges from $15-$30 per child per month.

While all our children attend public schools, we give them a competitive edge by providing private tutoring in English, Math, Art, Music, and Quranic studies. We also hold regular competitions for speech, math, Quran,” chess, etc., which help build their self-confidence, critical thinking and public speaking skills.

2. Higher Education/College

Globally, most orphanages will support children until the end of the age of eighteen. The outcome of this leads to broken dreams and unfortunate circumstances for many children because they do not have any place to go to. At Givelight, we are committed to supporting our children as they transition to adulthood, and to ensure that they will be able to reach their full potential and find their place in the world.

To do this, we have created the Higher Education Fund. This is an innovative “pay-it-forward” model in which Givelight provides funds for children to attend college; when they graduate, they are to pay back this fund over time (interest-free) so we can continue to support the success of other children as well. We are proud to share that 15 of our children have graduated from college, and with this sustainable model, we hope to support many more.

You can make an enduring impact in shaping the lives and destinies of our children by donating to an existing education fund or by establishing your own. In a few years, more of our children will graduate from college, God willing, so this is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of their long-term success.

Here's the process

1. Choose a name for your scholarship fund. It could be your family name (s) or individuals who have made a lasting impact in your life. For example:

    • honor your parents who made sacrifices for you and helped you become the successful individual you are today.
    • honor a mentor in your life who put you on the path to contentment.
    • honor a teacher who believed in you.
    • honor your own precious children by setting up a scholarship to which they too can contribute to. Your children can learn from your example and continue on with your Family Scholarship for generations to come!

2. Determine if the fund is for Scholarships or the Higher Education Fund.

    • For Scholarship Fund, you can set up any amount either one time or monthly.
    • For the Higher Education Fund, we suggest you start with a commitment of $1000 per year. You will receive the bio and picture of the child you are sponsoring. We will introduce you to her/him and she/he will be responsible to keep you updated on their academic progress.

3. Once your scholarship fund is set up, you would reach out to your family and friends and encourage them to make contributions to your fund. You can continue to make contributions to your fund at any time to help it grow and impact the educational needs of as many children as possible.
