ServeTrust strongly believes education is the key component to changing the tides of poverty for future generations of children. Through education, they will be better positioned to end the suffering that comes from a life of poverty for themselves and their families. In and around Narasaraopet, a very poor, remote provincial city in Andhra Pradesh, Leena, a former teacher herself, and her dedicated team, educate impoverished children and young adults, providing hope and skills for a better life.
ServeTrust provides elementary education from pre-school through grade 5 at three different elementary schools. Each school provides basic education in the areas of English, math and science, with some schools providing extracurricular studies. To encourage families to send their children to school, ServeTrust provides basic needs to each child and their families including a monthly supply of rice and lentils, toiletries, 1 simple outfit a year and medications as needed. If funds allow, each child receives a special Christmas and Easter outfit, sandals, mosquito nets and blankets.
