Hospitality exchange involves hosting people in your home, and vice-versa – staying in other people’s homes – while you are travelling.
Founded in 1949 as a peace movement by Mahatma Ghandi, Servas is today an international, non-governmental, interracial peace association run in over 100 countries by volunteers. Servas encourages travellers to experience other societies more deeply and with more understanding. Through Servas, travellers have the opportunity to meet their host, their families and friends and join in their everyday life.
