Cedar Home
Vocational Center for Boys

walking alongside the local church


Sociopolitical unrest and economic challenges place many young men in Lebanon at elevated risk of unjust labor trafficking. Lebanon Cedar Home vocational center for boys seeks to offer alternative solutions for boys (13-18 years old) looking to provide for their families amidst such trying times. This non-residential academy both trains students in a marketable trade and connects them with local Church of God bodies for discipleship. Global Strategy projects walk alongside the Lebanon Cedar Home as they renovate and prepare the site for a successful project launch.


The goal of this project is to raise a total of  $61,824.

Project # 42.40335

History of Cedar Home Orphanage

In 1957, TEAM Mission met with pastors and leaders from the Church of God in Lebanon to discuss the joint running of a shelter they had opened a few years prior called Haven of Hope. The shelter was for children who had been separated from their families during the Palestinian immigration or during the hostilities at that time. On July 21, 1961, the home got its official papers from the government and was named Cedar Home.

During the years Cedar Home moved from one place to another due, mainly because of the civil war between 1975 and 1991. Finally in 2001, it settled in Nabay, a village 13 kilometers northeast of Beirut.
