Gifts of Service

Gifts of Service that do a world of good!

Start a new tradition of giving!

Celebrate friends and family with Gifts of Service and bring healing and hope to people in need.

Seva (say-va) is a Sanskrit word for service. Seva Foundation was formed in 1978 with a mission to alleviate suffering caused by disease and poverty.

Our approach is to build partnerships that respond to locally defined problems with culturally sustainable solutions. Seva currently works to:

  • Prevent blindness and restore sight in India, Nepal, Tibet, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Egypt, Tanzania and Guatemala.
  • Help indigenous communities in Guatemala and Mexico develop their capacity to meet basic needs and create solutions to poverty and injustice.
  • Support Native American projects across the U.S. in the areas of health and wellness, community development, environmental protection and cultural preservation.

Seva's work is made possible by the generosity of donors, foundations, volunteers and friends — all joined together in the spirit of service.
