Atheists In Kenya Society


We promote the growth and interaction of atheists in Kenya

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

Over the last six years, we have fought to defend the separation of religion from government with legal actions, lobbying the government, and engaging in protests and other public actions to ensure that the rights of atheists, humanists, spiritualists, skeptics, agnostics, and free thinkers are protected.

Our Mission

To promote the growth and interaction of atheists in Kenya.

Our Vision

The Atheists In Kenya Society envisions a country in which public policy is made using the best evidence we have rather than religious dogma and where religious beliefs are no longer seen as an excuse for bigotry or cause to receive special treatment from the government. We fight for religious equality for all Kenyans.

Science has proven to be a remarkably successful way of understanding some aspects of our world. There is no doubt that scientists have dramatically increased our knowledge about things like the size and age of our universe, the history of life on our planet, and how our bodies work.


Atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers, spiritualists, skeptics, and other nontheists have a home with us. We provide a unique service in building a community of like-minded Kenyans.


Skeptical inquiry refers to the attitude of asking questions constantly, thoroughly examining information and evidence and making valid conclusions. It helps us to be able to provide good evidence on which we base our conclusions.

Skeptical Inquiry

We want to foster the public acceptance of atheists in Kenya. Atheism in Kenyan is frowned upon by the general public. Atheists are considered to be devil worshippers who are immoral. We would want this perception to change.



We promote humanism

The Atheists In Kenya Society is a member of Humanists International.

Humanism is a philosophy, world view, or lifestance based on naturalism-the conviction that the universe or nature is all that exists or is real.

Humanism serves, for many humanists, some of the psychological and social functions of a religion, but without belief in deities, transcendental entities, miracles, life after death, and the supernatural.

Humanists seek to understand the universe by using science and its methods of critical inquiry-logical reasoning, empirical evidence, and skeptical evaluation of conjectures and conclusions to obtain reliable knowledge.

Humanists affirm that humans have the freedom to give meaning, value, and purpose to their lives through their own independent thought, free inquiry, and responsible, creative activity.

Humanists stand for the building of a more humane, just, compassionate, and democratic society using pragmatic ethics based on human reason, experience, and reliable knowledge ethics that judges the consequences of human actions by the well-being of all life on Earth.

Atheism is the lack of belief in a god or gods. Atheism indicates what someone does not believe. It says nothing about what someone does believe.

Skepticism is a way of thinking that allows us to welcome new ideas and yet cautions us to analyze them critically. It’s an attitude that allows us to navigate, to the best of our abilities, the murky divide between sense and nonsense, science and pseudoscience.

Secular can mean something that doesn’t have any affiliation with religion. Secularism does not refer to opposition to religion. The secular community applies to people who live without religion, particularly those who define themselves as atheists, humanist, or similar groups.

Secular humanism is a nonreligious worldview rooted in science, philosophical naturalism (rather than supernaturalism), and humanist ethics.
