Leo Igwe Classroom is being constructed in western Uganda, in the village of Kanungu. It is on the campus of Brighter Brains Humanist Secondary School.

Leo Igwe (born July 26, 1970) is a Nigerian human rights advocate and humanist.  Igwe is a former Western and Southern African representative of the International Humanist and Ethical Union,  and has specialized in campaigning against and documenting the impacts of child witchcraft  accusations. He holds a Ph.D from the Bayreuth International School of African Studies in Germany. Igwe's human rights advocacy has brought him into conflict with high-profile witchcraft believers, because of his criticism of their role in violence and child abandonment. His human rights fieldwork has led to his arrest on several occasions in Nigeria. Igwe has held leadership roles in the Nigerian Humanist Movement, Atheist Alliance International, and the Center for Inquiry —Nigeria. In 2012, Igwe was appointed as a research fellow of the  James Randi Educational Foundation, where he continues working toward the goal of responding to what he sees as the deleterious effects of superstition, advancing skepticism throughout Africa and around the world. In 2014, Igwe was chosen as a laureate of the International Academy of Humanism and in 2017 received the Distinguished Services to Humanism Award from the International Humanist and Ethical Union.
