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