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.
Young Women's Home and Vocational Program
Thanks to the generosity f our donors, the construction of our home for at-risk young women (ages 18-24) is complete! To give them a good start, we are also raising 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.

Begin construction of women's residential facility.
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.
