Humanist values.jpg

Brighter Brains Institute provides secular humanist education in multiple African nations. We promote the ideals above from the book Global Ethics: Ten Humanist Principles, written by Canadian scholar Rodrigue Tremblay. 

Promoting science-based humanism in SubSaharan Africa provides a progressive option to the region's 920 million people - the grim alternatives are 1) traditional African 'witchcraft' with dangerous superstitions: albino-killings, child sacrifice, female genital mutilation, etc. 2) fundamentalist, homophobic, anti-birth control Christianity, 3) repressive Islam with extremist groups like Boko Haram.
