Africa’s First Humanist Bookstore & Internet Cafe

Africa Needs Humanism - to combat superstition; to promote scientific thinking; to alleviate violence between Christians and Muslims; to oppose the lethal dogmas of religion (anti-condoms, homophobia)

Good News; It’s Happening!

Humanism is spreading in western Uganda - there’s 10 humanist and "interested in humanism" schools in the region. Kasese Humanist Primary School started the science-based movement in 2009, directed by Bwambale Robert Musubaho. By 2014 it was receiving aid from Brighter Brains Institute (BBI), a USA non-profit. 

Next step: Africa’s First Humanist Bookstore & Internet Cafe!

 “Leo Igwe Humanist Centre” will be the name of the bookstore/internet cafe, titled after the brave Nigerian humanist and human rights activist and journalist who is presently combatting witchcraft practices in the SubSaharan. 

No Gods, No Saviour - Leo Igwe’s collection of essays, will be available at the bookstore.

Orphans of Ruwenzori: A Humanist Perspective - by Bwamable Robert Musubaho, the humanist leader in western Uganda, will also be available in multiple copies. 

Leo Igwe Humanist Centre will also have computers with internet access, science books, smartphones for rent, condoms, AFRIpads and GEMpads, and adult literacy classes.

The venture has been entirely funded by a Canadian donor and friend of BBI.

This is the 3rd "FIRST" for BBI - in 2015 they started BiZoHa, the "world's first atheist orphanage"; in 2009 the BBI director (Hank Pellissier) started the world's first atheist film festival

Books, computers, and cameras - will hopefully be contributed - can you help?

All donations from USA citizens will receive a tax deductible receipt, and their name on a plaque inside this history-making business (right next to a poster of the Ten Humanist Principles.)

Additionally, they will receive photo and news article updates of the humanist bookstore’s progress, and - if they donate over $50 - a tshirt that says “Leo Igwe Humanist Centre, Kyarumba, Uganda.”
