Mothers of Uganda documents the profound impact of our stress management program in the lives of disadvantaged women in Kampala, Uganda.

Before TM I was getting angry so easily and fighting and acting any way that I felt in order to get relieved of anger; but now I’m more peaceful and have self-control and get along better with people. Being a single mom, I had a lot of stress because my child got sick a lot and I couldn’t take care of her or pay the house rent. Now that I have TM I am feeling better, less stressed. I have started working selling mangoes and I am taking better care of my daughter.
