欢迎来到SERVAS中国 Welcome to the SERVAS CHINA
1945年二次世界大战结束,为了防止全球再次上演家破人亡的悲剧,英国人洛特勒发起成立一个和平组织。1949年,一群自称“和平建造者”的年轻行动家在丹麦成立了Servas,意即我服务(I serve)。它的一贯的理念是:不同背景的人之间提供直接接触机会,促进跨文化了解,达到真诚包容的和平。

至今,Servas发展成为一个串连旅行者与接待者的国际性和平友善组织。它完全由义工运作,组织采取会员制,遍布全球130多个国家。不论访客或主人都需要通过申请的方式,经所居住国家联络人面谈后,才能正式成为会员。Servas鼓励想要出门探索世界的人们作深度采访,认识不同文化、宗教和种族,因理念崇高,在联合国的经济与社会委员会中,是具有咨询地位的非政府组织。
旅行与接待,理解与和平

I recently had a trip to the U.S. from late October to late November. It was a trip combing my field research with leisure.
Ms. Ane Powers of D.C. hosted me for 4 nights. She showed me around and we tried different restaurants. She took me to the Hostelling International Fellowship Award party. It was great fun. She used to serve for a committee of HI. The mission of HI is similar with that of Servas.
Mr. Hayden Wetzel of D.C. hosted me for two nights. For some reasons, I contacted him to enquire the possibility of visiting him with very short notice; still, he responded promptly and said yes. From his lovely photo wall and guest books, it is so obvious that how nice a man he is.
I also paid a short visit to Lancaster, PA. There is only one Servas member
called Ms. Dorothy Killebrew. She was unavailable because of family gathering but she is so kind to introduce one of her friends, Ms. Eudora Roseman, to host me for one night. Eudora showed me the Amish community and covered bridges and Lancaster city. The Amish culture is really unique.
As a new member of Servas, I really appreciate those valuable opportunities to know local people and experience different cultures. We shared ideas and opinions about food, movie, politics, religion and alternative medicine, etc. I believe this kind of visiting could inspire a better and real understanding of people, places, and cultures to create a more coherent world.
