Over 10 years we’ve welcomed 86 volunteers in Uganda and countless volunteers in Canada who have performed over 27,967 volunteer hours!
Interns in our program have executed communications, programs and monitoring and evaluation, and research. Our professional volunteer program has hosted dozens of volunteer midwives, supporting Shanti staff with daily operations at the Birth House. Other volunteers have worked on event planning and execution, fundraising, grant writing, graphic design, web design, bookkeeping, and administrative/office tasks. Volunteers help keep Shanti running.
Unlike other volunteer programs, our program is deeply rooted within the community we serve, looking to our community partners, clients, and Ugandan staff for direction on how best to improve health services for families in Uganda. Our volunteers and staff commit to working with no ego and put the voices of our Ugandan stakeholders at the forefront of everything we do.
