Casablanca, Morocco

In Fall 2012 a generous family donated land to Givelight to honor the memory of their daughter who passed away in an untimely death at the age of 24. Givelight held two fundraising events so far and raised $335K for the construction of Maison de Lumiere Lor Hour of Light in Casablanca. We have found a pro bono architect based in San Francisco and we are partnering with University of San Francisco to build our next home.
