“Donate your time. Research shows 1 hour per week can change a students life.”

Welcome, let's get to know each other. Swaliga (Swah-lee-guh) is a tribal word that has a similar meaning to the word "passion". Founded in 2012 in Washington, DC, USA, Swaliga empowers youth all around the world through STEAM education and entertainment.

In 2018, Swaliga Cultural Exchange program led a group of 75 students and educators from across the United States to assemble 100 solar lamps with students from Eldorado Park in South Africa. The students learned about solar energy, and the lamps were promptly hand delivered to families living without proper electricity in Kliptown, South Africa.
