In our January 2011 Church Conference, Westwood approved the establishment of a three-year mission partnership with ServeTrust, a ministry organization based in India under the direction of Leena Lavanya. We have since extended our partnership for another three years.
ServeTrust is an Indian NGO (non-governmental organization) located in Narasaraopet, in the Southeast Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.
ServeTrust's mission is to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of the marginalized in Indian society. ServeTrust began in 1992 by providing sewing training for commercial sex workers to give them a new life away from the slavery of the streets. Today, ServeTrust has grown into an organization with a range of projects focused on seeking justice for those that society rejects or takes advantage of because they are caught in the debilitating nexus of poverty, hunger, commercial sex work, lack of education, and HIV / other infectious diseases.

We look forward to the possibilities that this partnership will bring for us as a faith community!
