Scott Douglas Jacobsen: How did you build a cooperative and flourishing irreligious community where you live?

Robert Magara: To build a cooperative and make my community flourish irreligious, I am just doing the sensitization about Humanism and using our Ten Humanist principles and values.

Jacobsen: What kind of things do you do there?

Magara: We have a primary school, women’s empowerment center groups, the community garden, we are also planning to build a clinic in our community given the funds.
