Shanti Uganda is a Canadian Charity and Ugandan NGO committed to reducing preventable maternal mortality throughout Uganda. Our solar powered Birth House is located in a remote community in Central Uganda and welcomes up to 30 babies every month. Using registered Ugandan midwives and Traditional Birth Attendants, we provide care to rural families including prenatal visits, STI testing, birth services, comprehensive postpartum care and well-baby check ups.

Our model is rooted in respectful, gentle, mother-centered care that leverages local knowledge and modern best practices to create a safe space where women who have traditionally birthed at home feel welcome. Our maternal mortality rate remains zero.

Growth of the soul is our goal, and there are many ways to encourage that growth, such as through love, nature, healing our wounds, forgiveness, and service. The soul grows well when giving and receiving love. I nourish my soul daily by loving others and being vulnerable to their love. Love is, after all, a verb, an action word, not a noun. Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.
