As a member of Humanists International, we support the global humanist movement.

The national goal of the Atheists In Kenya Society is twofold — separation of church and state and to offer support to those who are like-minded (including agnostics, skeptics, humanists, free thinkers, skeptics, and spirritualists) and know they are not alone in a country where the majority have a religion.

The number of Kenyans who do not believe in God has grown so much that they no longer operate in secret. Today, they stand at over half a million, in a country where 90 percent of the population consider themselves Christians or Muslims.

our core values.

Logic and Critical Thinking

We believe in rigorously questioning ideas and assumptions rather than accepting them at face value. We seek to determine whether the ideas, arguments and findings represent the entire picture and are open to finding that they do not.


We hold that human compassion and empathy are crucial to improving the human condition. We need to allow ourselves to be moved by suffering be motivated to help alleviate and prevent it.


We value knowledge and hold that the endeavor to increase it as best we can in order to pursue the truths about our world is one of the noblest efforts one can make. Any and all efforts to stifle or denigrate knowledge and learning is immoral.


We hold that all people have the inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and that all people are entitled to freedom of conscience.


We live in a natural

There are no gods or ghosts, disembodied spirits or immortal souls. There is no divine realm. Of course there are strange or as yet unanswered questions about the world, but as we gain knowledge and understanding then previously unexplained phenomena are always brought into the “natural world”, or can be understood “under the laws of nature” (or however you like to think of it). This view is also sometimes known philosophically as naturalism.
