Seva is a Sanskrit word meaning service to others.

Seva's work is made possible by the generosity of donors and volunteers inspired by the spirit of service.

Since 1978, Seva has been a leading innovator in building partnerships that deliver cost-effective, culturally-informed health services for some of the world's most vulnerable -- including women, children, and indigenous peoples. Seva finds and strengthens dedicated, capable partners. Seva's goal is project sustainability and self-reliance so our partners continue delivering services long after our involvement has ended. In Asia, Africa, and Latin America Seva helps end preventable blindness, and in the United States supports Native Americans in re-building healthy, diabetes-free communities.
