Seva Foundation

Seva Foundation

Seva is an international health organization working to build sustainable programs in underserved communities around the globe.

The name Seva (say-va) is the Sanskrit word for “selfless service.”

Seva was founded in 1978 by a group of medical professionals, counterculture activists, musicians, and compassionate individuals, all dedicated to the alleviation of suffering in the world. Most notably among them are public health expert Dr. Larry Brilliant, spiritual leader Ram Dass, and humanitarian activist Wavy Gravy.
