WHAT IS SERVAS?
Servas is an international, non-governmental, interracial peace association run in over 100 countries by volunteers. Founded in 1949 by Bob Luitweiler as a peace movement, Servas International is a non-profit organisation working to build understanding, tolerance and world peace.
Servas is a network of over 13,000 hosts around the world who are interested in opening their doors to travellers, who want to get to know the heart of the countries they visit. Where convenient, hosts may offer two nights? accommodation and invite travellers to share a meal. Names and addresses of hosts appear in annually produced lists which are made available to approved travellers. Servas hosts are just a cross-section of ordinary people.
The only requirement to join SERVAS as a host is the willingness to offer hospitiality to travellers of any race and culture.
SERVAS INTERNATIONAL has consultative status as an NGO ( non-governmental organisation) with the United Nations Economic and Social Council, currently with representation at many of the UN's hubs of activity.
Hope you may be able to join us.
