lydia house Liberia
"Lydia House" is a residential Christian women's home in Gbarnga, Liberia (West Africa) under the local leadership of our partners, Pastors Owen and Viola Dunbar. Lydia House will offer provision, medical care, and vocational training for young women exiting or in danger of involvement in human trafficking, sexual violence, homelessness, abandonment, or extreme poverty. While in residence at this home, young women will complete their education and learn a profitable skill or trade. Training will also be made available to qualifying non-resident women, who may attend as day students.
The training is intended to equip young women to become financially and socially independent when they graduate from the program and re-enter society. Aside from the goal of breaking the cycle of poverty and abuse, the ultimate goal of the home is the formation of godly, independent women leaders for the country of Liberia.
