Testimonials

“Shanthi Project saves lives.”
David Lothian, Volunteer Services Coordination, Northampton County Prison

“Being a part of Shanthi and working with kids is just a humbling experience for me each time I teach and connect with the kids. Truly, no matter where their world exist, kids developmentally are just kids. Although, some kids may seem tough or disinterested deep down they want all that is good, they want to be loved and they truly enjoy peace. We don’t need to present them with bells and whistles. I have seen first hand how a little “no tech” fun, a lot of laughs and honest respect goes a long way.“
Ann Serfass, Speech Pathologist and Shanthi Project Early Childhood Teacher
