I've been a volunteer and donor for two years and I can honestly say my life has been changed because of it. I have had the privilege of traveling to Kenya twice, I sponsor a beautiful little girl that I was lucky enough to help rescue, and I've gotten the chance to serve locally at their GA headquarters. I also support their food outreach through my business and I'm thankful that I don't have to question where the money is actually going. The staff is truly dedicated to their global efforts and heart for people in need and I will continue to support and work closely with SERV!

Fantastic charity that is straight from the soul. Steve Kasha has an amazing story that leads through his passion for helping. This Charity is trying to stand on it's own two legs with a goal to make different parts of the world less deprived by starting with Food First. Highly recommend researching www.servone.org to gather more information and to see Steve's personal story. After listening to his core beliefs and his passion for serving you will be impressed and want to know how you can help. The website is very easy to navigate and you can donate at any time. Reach out to the corporate office 770-516-1108 and ask for Steve directly if you want to know more! How many other Charities can you say that you can speak to the founder? You won't be disappointed and he enjoys coffee!

SERV International is 100% Pass Through. I have seen first hand the compassion they have for others in need of food and shelter fuel their drive to SERV others and through this share their Love of Jesus Christ. "Service above Self"

SERV International is an organization that has my heart. My husband and I were looking for an organization to get involved with over 6 years ago. That's when we found out about SERV. We got to know the leadership, the vision, the financial integrity, and the hearts of everyone involved. The deeper we got, the more we felt grateful that there was an organization like this. We began financially supporting them, then we became ambassadors, then we starting sponsoring children at the House of Hope orphanage, and then I took 2 trips to Kenya with SERV. Through SERV's dedication to changing other people's lives, they've changed ours.

SERV International is an amazing organization that has changed the lives of so many people. My daughter first discovered SERV and was blown away by their programs they are doing around the world! They provide food and water to those in need and have two orphanages. What an amazing organization. They have been operating for 17 years. They have proven repeatedly their heart to SERV. I cannot wait to go on a mission trip with them to Kenya. When I talk to those who have gone they say they now see life in a whole new way.

SERV is a great nonprofit. Their feeding and water projects are making a huge impact globally. I have had the pleasure of seeing all of this first hand in Kenya. The House of Hope Orphanage and kids there are not only precious but truly life changing.

Serv International does so much for so many people. From helping people in the United States experience life in a whole new way to providing food to those suffering from the east Africa drought. Their trips they offer are life changing and has become a cornerstone in my life. Getting involved with Serv changed my life for the better. This is one of the best nonprofits I have ever been apart of.

I can't say enough good things about this organization. My daughter has been on two mission trips with them and it changed her life. They make such a difference in the lives in our communities, as well as the lives of those in other countries. Families have clean water, food and clothing due to their commitment to change lives! The people that make up Serv, whether it be employees or volunteers, they have a passion for SERVing and they are making a difference every day. Thank you SERV International!!!

Truth and transparency ... two words that matter most in today's economy of giving money for any cause. For me, it was about seeing it with my own two eyes; I wanted to know where my money was going and how it was being spent. So I went to Kenya with SERV International in September of 2017 and found out for myself just how extraordinary this small, but incredibly efficient non-profit really is. I am impressed to the core with authenticity of the mission and its leadership. But more importantly, I experienced up close and personal how SERV International is not just saving lives one meal at a time, but it's changing the world one life at a time. I am proud to be a supporter in good faith for all good faith reasons.

This organization has changed the life of my whole family! It started with my daughter going on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic with them, which led to me making 3 trips to Kenya, Africa with this organization. We now have the privilege to sponsor 3 orphans through SERV. To see the work they are doing up close and in person will impact you in a big way. They are addressing countless needs of people, from food to water, to an orphanage and education, all with the platform of sharing Jesus. But, the best part is that it is all being done in order to help them become self sustaining. I am so excited to have found an organization that is 100% pass thru that I can get behind. With SERV, you not only get to financially support, but you are encouraged to be hands on as well.

I've done a couple of mission trips with SERV. Both were outstanding experiences, and this organization surpassed all of my expectations. The staff is wonderful to work with and very organized. The men leading the trip were wonderful to serve with, the team I served with was fabulous, and I'm sure that I'll work with SERV again. I have every confidence that overhead is kept to a minimum, and that the maximum amount of funds donated possible goes to the people who are being served. Top-notch organization that I am honored to be associated with. Highly recommended if you want a life-changing experience!

This isn't your ordinary non-profit. From the minute you walk through the front door, you know something is different. People say a picture says a thousand words, but I think the pictures on the walls at SERV tell a thousand stories - stories of lives being saved and changed forever through their ministry.

SERV helps to feed people all over the world for only 8 cents per meal. They go into a village in need, feed people both spiritually and physically, and keep going back to help fulfill their basic needs, taking them from survival mode to sustainable living.

I've had the privilege to witness so many changed lives due to the heart of this organization. They really care about everyone they serve - from the most remote villages in the northwest desert of Kenya to their local outreach serving people in need in their own community. They just love others.

People are naturally drawn to the work they do, as they are revolutionizing the way people see and experience life through their organization. I am beyond thankful to those I have helped through SERV, and consider myself blessed to be a blessing.

When I first heard about SERV last year, I was blown away by all the work they are doing around the world! Reading through the stories on their website warmed my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I got connected with SERV and ended up going with them on a local mission. I got to help minster to the community right here in Canton, and it was such a joy and blessing to be a part of! I got to meet so many sweet and caring people, and got the opportunity to have meaningful conversations with them as well. SERV International is such an amazing organization and their ministry is truly life-changing for all who are involved.

I went to Kenya in June with SERV and was blown away by the way they do ministry in another country. It was amazing to see the Kenyans being empowered to serve their people and love Christ. They feed people in Kenya but also in other parts of Africa, Dominican Republic, Cambodia, and beyond. They are not only feeding people but also giving them eternal freedom by sharing what Jesus did with them! I fully believe in this ministry and what they are doing to further the Kingdom!

SERV International is an incredible organization that has changed the lives of so many people. I recently went on a trip with them to Kenya and watched how they used food to create change in each village we visited. I saw a group of widows who had developed programs to grow and sell food for income. I saw schools where students were flourishing because they had enough food to be strong and learn. I saw villages of starving people dancing to receive food. I saw wells, orphanages, and greenhouses, and so many lives changed because of the work they are doing. I also saw each person on the trip grow and change because of what they experienced. It is an all around great organization!

SERV International was started and is managed by a long-time acquaintance of mine. He is genuine about his faith in Christ and obedient to the charge of caring for the poor and spreading the Gospel. The money donated to SERV is carefully managed and is allotted to the fullest extent to the people that SERV cares for. After donating, I received a handwritten thank you note. Correspondence with the staff has always been sincere and gracious. In addition, SERV is consistent with informing the public about the organization to insure that donations continue solely to help the people in poverty. I highly recommend SERV as an avenue to help others in need.
