About Our Home
The Give Light Home will not be just another orphanage providing a roof over the heads of the displaced and helpless children of Sri Lanka. It will be a place for them to call home; a place that will give them direction, education, emotional and spiritual support. Most importantly, it will be a place filled with people around them who they can call “family.” In their times of darkness, we will provide them with light. The Give Light Home will plan to accommodate 75-100 Orphans in its full capacity, with all the necessary facilities to provide food, room, board, shelter, and education, giving these children a strong backbone of support.
The children will be carefully selected by a professional committee based on the highest level of need and support that they require. Our team will visit different cities, meet families and carefully select its candidates. Once they are placed, this will be there home until they become independent, compassionate, and successful individuals who will contribute towards society.
From its outside appearance to the inner design, the home is designed to provide the warmth of a house. The entrance to the home will have a beautiful homely lobby with seating for visitors. The building will consist of a total of 20 rooms, bathroom facilities, a common kitchen and pantry, common children’s room for games, television and activities, a library and computer room, dinning area, storage rooms, visitors rooms and a large play ground. The large back yard will have a vegetable and fruit garden where we plan to have the children manage and grow their own fruits and vegetables. Attached to the building will be a two bedroom apartment for the Mother and Father (Care Takers) of the home to reside.
The orphanage will be operated and managed by The Give Light Foundation, USA which currently operates three orphanages in Southeast Asia and sponsors nearly a 1000 orphans worldwide. More details will be made available closer to the completion of construction. Please visit their website, which can be found on Our Supporters page, where you can learn more about the management and operations of their homes in other countries.
