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.

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.

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.
