Jamilah Orom


Jamilah has worked for Shanti for 5 years, and lives right next door to our Volunteer House. Jamilah became the house cook at Shanti, as well as our unofficial volunteer mentor.

Jamilah grew up in Luwero, and in fact, remembers the time when which it was nothing but bush and trees. She attended St. Mark’s Cathedral School and studied tailoring. When Jamilah is not busy with Shanti, she works as a tailor, while also helping run her family shop. She has a 5 year old daughter named Anita who is as cute as her mother.

Jamilah is always fashionable, dressed in the newest outfits and with a different hairstyle every other month. Most importantly, Jamilah is an amazing cook and kepts everyone healthy.
