Servas Logo

Servas (Servas) is an international organization established in 1947 to fight for world peace. Initially the organization was called “Peacebuilders”. Today’s name is translated from Esperanto as “I serve” (meaning “I serve the cause of peace”). After all, came up with her students, who thought that when you travel to another country, far better to stay away from each other than in hotels. This is the main idea. That there were no wars need people to make friends with each other and could well understand each other. Therefore, coming to another country, stopping in each other’s guests will be able to better understand another country, another culture, another way of life. Since 1973, Servas International is recognized as a nongovernmental organization that operates under the auspices of UNESCO. 

The organization has three statuses:
