Shanti Project
September 9, 2013

Compassion is one of the words that come to mind when I think about Shanti. Right before joining Shanti's Board, Kaushik Roy, Shanti's ED, invited me to attend Shanti's peer support training, which turned out being a life changing event. It was an incredible weekend which is difficult to describe in a few words. All I can say for now is that I learned a bit about Shanti's model and the idea that no one should go through a life threatening illness alone. I'm proud to be part of this organization and I'm proud to give back to my community by volunteering for Shanti.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Bring more resources and expand Shanti's services to other life threatening illnesses beyond HIV and cancer.

Shanti is my favorite nonprofit organization. I met Kaushik Roy, Shanti's Executive Director, at a Board Match event in San Francisco at the beginning of 2011, and I've been volunteering for Shanti ever since. After going through some rough times and getting much support from the San Francisco community, I've decided to give back to the community by supporting Shanti. I highly recommend taking the Peer Support Training, a three-day program, that will provide life changing tools to better interact and be compassionate with other people. It definitely changed my life.
