ServeTrust Home
What? ServeTrust is an Indian NGO (non-governmental organization) located in Narasaraopet, in the Southeast Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

Who? The heart and soul behind ServeTrust is its founder and director, an extraordinary Indian woman named Leena Lavanya who has dedicated her life to being a servant among the poorest of the poor.

Why? 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 to 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.
