Brighter Brains Institute has sponsored over 40 Critical Thinking presentaions, with many offered in  the "sharia zone" of Nigeria, in the cities of Maiduguri, Zaria, and Kaduna. 

Our CT workshop uses the iDOUBT method designed by Leo Igwe, and the "Why Do We Believe What We Believe?" method co-created by Abdulrahman Aliyu and Hank Pellissier. We encourage participants to be skeptical about superstitions that violate human rights: albino killing, child sacrifice, female genital mutilation, persecution of 'witches', etc.
