The Shanti Uganda Society was founded by Natalie Angell-Besseling in 2008 to help provide birth training and support for communities in Uganda that are affected by war, poverty, and HIV/AIDS. The first program that Shanti Uganda formed was to select 600 HIV-positive women to form an Income Generating Group. These 600 women, along with other community members, began planning a community birthing center. The group purchased an acre of land in Nsaasi Village, and began the construction of the Shanti Uganda Birth House. The doors to the birthing center opened in fall of 2010.
