Atheists In Kenya Society


We promote the growth and interaction of atheists in Kenya

The Atheists  In Kenya Society is dedicated to advancing the civil rights of atheists in Kenya, promoting separation of religion from government, and providing information about atheism.

Over the last six years, the Atheists In Kenya Society has 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 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.

Humanists, atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, or other nontheists have a home with AIK. AIK provides a unique service in building a community for atheists and humanists in Kenya.



Our online and physical atheist meet-ups provide lively spaces for debate, support, and conversation. We encourage discussion about any and all topics as long as it abides by our guidelines.



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.


Putting humanism into practice

Humanism is a positive progressive worldview that has the potential to transform political and cultural life into one that embraces justice, equality, and better living for all.

In a society where prejudice and discrimination against those who don’t believe in gods or other intervening supernatural powers is common, it is important for advocates to defend their equal rights. Humanists and other nontheists are victims of discrimination in many aspects of life including: the workplace, pharmacies, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, prisons, the media, sports, government buildings, politics, elections, the courts, memorials, holidays, and even within our own families.

The Atheists In Kenya Society is committed to putting humanism into practice.

Through our ceremonies, pastoral support, and campaigning work, we advance free thinking and freedom of choice so everyone can live in a fair, equal and secular society.

We also promote respect for human rights and humanist values on an international level. As a member of Humanists International we support the global humanist movement.

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.

Are you a skeptic and want to know more about skepticism? Do you just want to have a better understanding of skepticism?

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.

Want to know more about secular humanism?

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