Join Shanti Uganda’s 2015 Doula Training, “Birthing and Beyond”

http://www.shantiuganda.orgBy our partner, The Shanti Uganda Society

On August 27th to September 4th, The Shanti Uganda Society will be hosting its fourth annual doula training in Uganda, East Africa, the country considered to be the Pearl of Africa. The program has been running since 2012 and has received much positive feedback. A previous student described her experience in 2013 as transformative, humbling and amazing.

“I left a part of my heart in Uganda after leaving all of the wonderful women and children I met there. I would love for others who too are passionate about maternal and infant health to experience what I did so that it cannot only fuel your passion for change but ignite an explosion for change.”

This idea of Shanti Uganda’s doula training being a catalyst to fuel one’s passion for global access to safe dignified birth care goes hand in hand with Shanti Uganda’s mission and core values. Since its founding in 2007, Shanti Uganda has been committed to providing holistic mother-centered care and bringing dignity back to birth in Uganda. Shanti Uganda creates positive global change through grassroots and community initiatives and connecting cultures across the globe. Participants are given a unique experience to be trained while immersed in Ugandan culture.
