Lenexa nonprofit celebrates International Women’s Day with support of sewing school in India

Lenexa nonprofit Heartland International Ministries is celeberating International Women’s Day by supporting a sewing school for women in India. The nonprofit is supporting Pastor P.K.’s Sewing School in India. “As Americans, we enjoy many amenities and freedoms that others do not,” said Byron Whetstone, president and executive director. “We can share our abundance with others around the world and provide immediate and sustainable relief. On International Women’s Day, we celebrate our sisters in India and the work of a pastor in India, who started a sewing school.” The school and business teach women employable skills and also help the economy by providing a living for families, according to the nonprofit.
