Hemant has a guest post at his blog by Sean McGuire about the Kasese Humanist Primary School in Uganda. Currently, our four young Pathfinders — Ben Blanchard, Michelle Huey, Wendy Webber and Conor Robinson — have left Cambodia and are spending a few weeks at the school helping teach the students. The school’s mission:
The school is set up on the foundation of Science and Humanism so Humanism and Free thought knowledge is taught to the learners, Humanist principles, Values and ethics are offered to our children, free inquiry and critical thinking based on science philosophy is emphasized and lessons offered are free from dogmas and indoctrinations which is prevalent in the majority of Ugandan communities. We embrace REASON and belief in things backed by empirical evidence not myths, fairy tales and allegories.
