Scott Douglas Jacobsen: How can other African countries develop humanist education programs for youth?

Robert Bwambale: They can do so by creating humanist organizations in their areas and networking with secular communities globally. It could be a gradual process for them to achieve this, though.

Jacobsen: What other people are developing programs at the moment with impressive outcomes for humanist education in the African diaspora?

Bwambale: One of my role models is Leo Igwe who remodified the Critical Thinking program to suit the African context. It is steadily being taught to people all over Africa.

The British Humanist Association has played a key part in providing an educational free resource website named Understand Humanism. This has helped us to access easily information, which we easily pass on to the students.

Jacobsen: What are the educational performance differences of those in the humanist schools compared to those in the normal public school, in general?

Bwambale: Those in humanist schools perform better than those in normal public schools.

The pupils in our schools have informed minds since they are given the opportunity to question everything; this favors them to have a widened mind.

Jacobsen: Is there an organization or association that unites the humanist educational establishments in Africa or in particular African countries?

Bwambale: Actually, I only know of one in Uganda. Its Uganda Humanist Schools Association of which my schools are members. Other schools associated with this association include Isaac Newton High school, Mustard Seed Secondary School, and Pearl vocational college.

Jacobsen: How can people or organizations get involved or collaborate with you?

Bwambale: People can volunteer to teach or work at my schools or associated projects.

People can fundraise for my initiatives wherever they might be and link up.

Mutual collaborations with like-minded organizations are also welcome.
