    Community Programs

    80% of Libassa staff are from the surrounding communities. They are with us since the first beginning of Libassa opening. We are training them on all department: Maintenance, laundry, customer service and hospitality. Getting salary which is also benefiting all their families.

    We open an Early Learning Center in October 2016 which welcome around 50 children from 3 to 8 years old based on a montessori program. These children didn't have access to education before that time. All the children and parents are so happy to have this 3 concrete classrooms with an outside secure chilplayground. We do once a year a cultural day program which is to encourage parents and children to keep their cultural heritage through dancing, and speaking the traditional language. Our next project is to open afternoon classroom to over age children who never went to school before and give them an accelerated program to learn how to read.

    Environmental Programs

    * Power: Electricity in the lodges is limited to 200 watts per room. In order to efficiently utilize energy, only essential electrical appliances are used, and are certified to use very low amounts of energy. All bulbs used are energy saving bulbs with over half of them being 3W LED Bulbs. Appliances such as the refrigerators in the kitchen are Energy Star (US rating) or A/A+ (EU rating) certified.


    * Solar power: All our external lighting is solar powered.


    * The next phase of investment at our Lodge will be going for 100% renewable energy, through Solar Power and Wind Power.


    * Solar heating: To heat water, an extensive solar heating system is in place that provides all necessary hot water for the kitchen, guests, and washing machines (the washing machines do not heat water electrically).


    * Limited water consumption: The resort is supplied water from 2 local wells. Kitchen water use is strictly controlled, while aerators limit water flow from faucets and showers.


    * composting: To minimize waste and utilize resources, the lodge has composting facilities where all food excess and waste is transformed into fertilizer.


    * recycling waste: Although only minimal amounts of paper and plastic are used on site, most waste is recycled and recycling bins are placed in convenient locations around the lodge for guests to take part in this important initiative


    * Planting: We have planted and continue to plant more trees than what we used to build our lodges.


    * Animal Sanctuary: Our lodge is the last area in the zone to be covered in wild forest and vegetation, making it a sanctuary for wild monkeys, small dears, etc…
    We officially open the Libassa Wildlife Sanctuary in 2016. This wildlife sanctuary is the first of its kind in Liberia, and is a partnership between the Forestry Development Authority, the Society for Conservation of Nature of Liberia, and the Libassa Ecolodge, with the following missions:
    · Keep, provide care and give support to confiscated wildlife (wild animals kept as pets or destined to bush meat);
    · Release confiscated wild animals back into the wild whenever possible;
    · Introduce behavioral study (observation), educational programs, public viewing, understanding;
    · Establish a botanical garden with a variety of indigenous plant species;
    · Create an aviary for rescue of a variety of bird species;
    · Protect sea turtles nesting grounds, guide the hatchlings back to the wild (Atlantic Ocean);
    · Encourage volunteer participation in nature work (protection, caretaking, release, etc…);
    · Train students and communities on wildlife protection;
    · Raise awareness on illegal trafficking of wildlife in Liberia; We live in an era where biodiversity is threatened, where natural habitats are disappearing at an alarming pace.
    Our sanctuary is as small but yet an important step in raising awareness on these issues and giving a hand to nature in Liberia.
