Shanti Uganda Improves Maternal and Infant Health Throughout Uganda
About The Shanti Uganda Society
Founded in 2008, Shanti Uganda is a grassroots Canadian charity and Ugandan NGO that supports women and families in the Luwero District of Uganda. We imagine a world where all women have access to a midwife and are respected, empowered and able to thrive throughout the birth process. No woman or child should die from preventable causes during birth.
The Shanti Uganda Birth House is a solar-powered maternity center that provides mother-centered care throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. We run prenatal education and yoga classes, a Nutrition and Community Garden Program, and a Teen Health Education Program. The Birth House is staffed by a dedicated team of Ugandan midwives, on-site lab technician and Traditional Birth Attendant.
