SERVED's vision speaks loudly on three areas. The first is my understanding of the Church as a people that bring about a positive and unique contribution to society. Secondly, the role of Education - growing up in Brazil, quality of education was determined by the financial investment that parents were able to make on their children's behalf, which in turn predicted the children's future. SERVED works to provide quality, trauma-relevant education to children in conflict zones where finances are not in place. Finally, building bridges - our vision promotes ecumenical cooperation among churches and fosters environments where bridges can be built to strengthen once war-torn relationships in the communities affected by conflict.
