What's the talk about?
The overwhelming majority of schools in Uganda are religious foundations offering an exclusively Christian or Moslem education to their pupils. By contrast, the Uganda Humanist Schools Trust (UHST) raises money in the UK to support a small number of inclusive charitable schools founded by Ugandan Humanists. These schools provide a liberal secular education to orphans and other needy children, and do not discriminate on grounds of religious, social or ethnic background. They are now giving more than 1000 children from deprived rural areas both a good education and opportunities in life that go beyond subsistence farming on the family plot.
Paul Ewans, a UHST trustee, will describe the progress the schools have made to date and outline what remains to be done to make the schools self-sufficient and secure their future.
