Some exciting updates...

The last few months have been ones of incredible growth and inspiration!

We have recently released a fabulous new Shanti Uganda shirt which was designed by Kim and made by Me to We Style. Made from 100% organic cotton, all proceeds go to Shanti Uganda. To purchase the shirt online visit:

We are also pleased to announce the release of The Light Within – A guided meditation CD for the beginner and beyond! $2 from every CD sold is donated to Shanti Uganda. To listen to sound clips and purchase the CD visit:

It is a great honour to introduce two new members to our Board of Directors: Nikiah Seeds and Bryan Gooden.

Nikiah has spent the last 10 years of her life dedicated to working with birthing families. She is also the owner of Mama Goddess Birth Shop and will be organising an online option to purchase birth kits which will be donated to the birthing women we support!

Bryan is an experienced counsellor and works to support children, their wellbeing and ability to heal. His passions in counselling are attachment, anxiety and trauma, which he will be integrating into our programs this summer while he spends time in Uganda!

In July, we will be hiring our first paid staff in Uganda! Julius Lubwama will act as our project coordinator in Uganda. He will monitor all Shanti Uganda projects, coordinate the work of the income generating initiatives and support volunteers.

In addition, we are pleased to continue working with Tamara White, our US Coordinator. Our paths crossed paths with Tamara during our first year in Uganda! Tamara is a motivating Social Studies teacher who inspires youth to raise global awareness and has established partnership projects between students in North America and Uganda.
