On June 20, 2015, Roger Hansen visited the Science & Literacy Center in Kyarumba, Uganda, that was funded via the generosity of the Mormon Transhumanist Association, the Christian Transhumanist Association, and the Alcor Life Extension Foundation.
Roger also delivered science equipment that was donated to the Centre. He carried the equipment to Uganda in his suitcase.
Roger is the co-Manager of Humanitarian Activities for MTA, he’s a frequent contributor to the African Futures Project at IEET.org, and he blogs about his world-wide humanitarian projects at Tired Road Warrior. He travels to Uganda frequently, delivering supplies, and putting up swing sets in rural Uganda areas for orphanages and schools. He also recently helped establish a Computer Training School in Masaka, at the LDS Church.
The name “Vivienne Harr” can be seen in one of the photos. Vivienne is the “Lemonade Girl” of Fairfax, California, who has sold over $100,000 worth of lemonade, to end slavery worldwide. She recently donated an American Girl Doll to the World Girl Dolls (WGD) organization. WGD sells American Girl Dolls on eBay and donates the money to help girls education internationally. Vivienne’s donation paid for the tuition of a girl at Kyarumba’s Vision Care School, which utilizes the Transhumanist Science & Literacy Center as their classroom. Vision Care students are wearing burgundy and powder blue uniforms, in the photos.
The three transhumanist groups are to be wildly commended for their generosity in accelerating knowledge in this part of the world. Their centre is aiding the children and townspeople in understanding the scientific method, and the scientific principles that govern our world, and will guide us towards helpful technology in the future.
