The Shanti Uganda Society

Founded in 2008, Shanti Uganda improves maternal and infant health throughout Uganda using a unique collaborative care model that utilizes registered Uganda midwives as primary care providers and Traditional Birth Attendants as labour support. We imagine a world where birthing mothers are supported, empowered and able to develop to their full potential. 


The Shanti Uganda Birth House is a solar powered maternity center on one acre of land in the Luweero District of Uganda. The Birth House provides mother-centered care throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period and is staffed by a team of Ugandan midwives, traditional birth attendant and lab technician. The Birth House acts as a community hub from which Shanti Uganda runs family planning education, prenatal education, prenatal yoga, a Nutrition and Community Garden Program, and a Teen Health Education Program.


Shanti Uganda is a registered Canadian Charity (#819964412RR0001), a Ugandan NGO, and a Private Not-For­ Profit Medical Facility registered through the Ministry of Health in Uganda.
