Shanti Uganda improves maternal & infant health throughout Uganda using a unique collaborative care model that utilizes registered Uganda midwives as primary care providers and Traditional Birth Attendants as labor support. Their vision is that all women will have access to a midwife and are able to give birth safely within a respectful, collaborative care model.
The Shanti Uganda Birth House is a solar powered maternity center on one acre of land in the Luwero 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, a 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 Community Garden Program, and Teen Girls Workshops.

Shanti-Budondo Intercultural Centre Join Forces (effective Summer 2019)
Shanti Uganda Birthing House
The Budondo Intercultural Centre is pleased to announce the addition of the Shanti Uganda Birth House to our existing programs and future vision. This joining of forces has been made possible by an exciting partnership between our organization and The Shanti Uganda Society, a Canadian charity and Ugandan NGO that has been operating in Uganda since 2008.
BIC and Shanti Uganda are thrilled to combine our successful programs under one organization and expand our collective impact throughout Uganda.
Shanti Uganda has worked tirelessly to improve maternal and infant health throughout Uganda through their maternal and child health services, Teen Health Education Programs, and a Community Garden and Nutrition Program. Supporting over 1644 births at the Shanti Uganda Birth House, their maternal mortality rate remains zero.
This partnership between Shanti Uganda and the Budondo Intercultural Center is much more than a joining of organizations - together we are merging our shared values, dedicated team and commitment to maternal & child health in Uganda.~Denis Muwanguzi, Director BIC
