SUSTAINABILITY

PHASES OF DEVELOPMENT

Our goal for Lydia House Liberia is to help it reach full sustainability. This will require at least 2 phases of giving. 

1

PHASE ONe 

Young Women's Home and Vocational Program

 

We are trying to raise enough to fund the construction of a home for at-risk young women (ages 18-24), as well as funding the first few years of staffing for the home. Once operational, the administration and residents of the home will work to develop sustainable enterprises that bring income to Lydia House and also enhance their vocational training; for example, goat and chicken farming (for milk and eggs) and sewing feminine hygiene kits.

Please consider partnering with us through annual, quarterly, or monthly giving to help us reach Phase Two and make Lydia House sustainable.

PHASE two 

Girls' School and Residential Program

 

In this phase, we hope to construct a secondary school (grades 7-12) and another residential facility for at-risk younger girls (ages 12-17). These facilities will be on the same property as the first residence and will serve a great many younger girls rescued out of human trafficking or denied opportunities for schooling. The presence of the secondary school will generate a major source of income for Lydia House through local paying students, whom we expect to comprise over 50% of the attendees. 

Please consider partnering with us through annual, quarterly, or monthly giving to help us reach Phase Two and make Lydia House sustainable

Once the school is fully operational and paying students begin attending, the entire compound should be self-sustaining through the vocational enterprises and school tuition payments.
