H+ Clinic in Bwethe is now sponsored by the Mormon Transhumanist Association

Posted: Sun, April 17, 2016 | By: Bwethe School



“H+ Clinic” is in the small town of Bwethe, 3 miles uphill from Kyarumba, in western Uganda. The location is lovely, on a ridge in the foothills of the Ruwenzori Mountains, overlooking two valleys of subsistence farmers.

The clinic, which serves 200 children at Bwethe Primary School, has been supported by the Brighter Brains Institute for the last year.

Starting next term, in mid-May, the clinic sponsorship will be transferred to the Mormon Transhumanist Association (MTA).

Brighter Brains Institute (BBI) will focus on maintaining support for the “humanist” non-religious schools that it presently sponsors. Clinics affiliated with religious groups, like H+ Clinic, are being offered to religious groups or individuals.

The Mormon Transhumanist Association has been a generous and reliable partner on many BBI projects, including a Computer Training School in Masaka, a Carpenter’s Workshop for AIDS Orphans in Kyarumba, and establishing a Science & Literacy Centre in Kyarumba.

Transferring H+ Clinic sponsorship to MTA also makes sense because MTA members were prominent supporters of the first campaign. Notable MTA donations came from Kathy Wilson, Brad Levin, and Christopher Bradford.

All photographs and medical records of H+ Clinic have been sent to MTA. Additionally, the “Bwethe Survey” - a questionnaire that asked 22 Bwethe students a variety of questions - has been mailed to Dorothy Deasy, the MTA Director of Humanitarian Activities.

BBI is thrilled to partner with MTA in sharing Bwethe’s needs. A joint visit to Bwethe next year, with representatives from both BBI and MTA, might also occur.
