Servas Open Doors

Servas Open Doors 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.

It operates through a network of Servas hosts around the world who are interested in opening their doors to travellers, and, 'on the other side of the coin', many open-minded travellers who want to get to know the heart of the countries they visit.

Servas International has consultative status as a non-governmental organization with the United Nations Economic and Social Council[?], currently with representation at many of the UN's hubs of activity.

There are over 13,000 Servas 'open doors' scattered throughout almost every country in the world.
