Peace and understanding through travel and hosting
Welcome to Servas
Servas International is an international, non-profit, non-governmental federation of national Servas groups,
encompassing an international network of hosts and travelers.
The purpose of the network is to help build world peace, goodwill and understanding by providing opportunities
for personal contacts among people of different cultures, backgrounds and nationalities.
Servas promotes trust, tolerance, open-mindedness and respect, so that people can live in peaceful coexistence.
Our members value understanding of different cultures, gender equality and diversity in
ethnicity, ideology, sexuality and nationality.
In times of increased movement of people and globalisation, there is a growing need to promote understanding
across borders and cultures. Hospitality and cultural interaction are the essential tools for achieving
conditions for people to live in peace and unity.
