Humanist Statement: Throughout recorded history here in Uganda there have been non-religious people who have believed that this life is the only life we have, that the universe is a natural phenomenon with no supernatural side, and that we can live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. we have trusted to the scientific method, evidence, and reason to discover truths about the universe and we have placed human welfare and happiness on critical and creative thinking. we believe that we can live with out supernatural things as how many people believe because they have been deceived that there is God who will help them to overcome their own problems. others have been mislead that attending witch doctors will be a solution to their problem and superstition is now high in Uganda. we accepted to be humanists in our community to teach others on what is happening in this modern world where is no relying on superstition. Many people almost 99.09% of our community doesn’t understand this word humanism and we want to tell the whole community and kasese atlarge through conducting workshops and empowering women in income generating activities so to uplift their standards
