Atheists In Kenya (AIK)

Bringing together non-believers …

About Us

thumbs-upAIK was founded in 2013 by a few truly visionary Kenyans who saw the need for the formation of a Society that brings together atheists. These Kenyans realized that secularism and humanism can offer an alternative to the religious worldview and that advocating for science and critical thinking as a way of understanding the world is imperative in Kenya.
AIK was formally registered as a Society under the Societies Act (Cap. 108), laws of Kenya in February 17th, 2016. The Registrar of Societies suspended our registration on 29th April, 2016. We have filed a case at the high court of Kenya asking the courts overturn this illegal and unconstitutional suspension. The matter was heard by Justice Mwita Chacha in November 1st, 2017. The judgement will be made in January 26th, 2018. We are inviting you to Milimani High Courts for the judgement.

We are really proud to be the first atheist society to be registered in Kenya. We currently have 300 registered members, and a huge following on social media!

We advocate for a separation of religion and state in Kenya. We hold the view that the Kenyan Constitution promotes secularism and fundamental freedoms under the Bill of Rights, including freedom of conscience.

We are the only Atheist Society in Kenya! We are also the most vibrant atheist society in Africa. We want you to join us, and become a part of the transformation of our religious culture that we seek in Kenya.dear-ms-morrison

(See Article 8 of the Kenyan Constitution)

We are not affiliated with any political party, and we accept any person as member, who declare themselves atheist and non-religious, provided that he is a Kenyan Citizen (18 years and above).

Our mission is to promote the growth and interaction of atheists in Kenya.

All our activities revolve around seven key objectives, which are :

thumb_orange_bullet to promote and practice the open, rational, and scientific examination of the universe and our place in it

Rationality is the use of logical reasoning in the areas of discourse and problem-solving. Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.

thumb_orange_bullet to advocate that ethics and morality be meaningfully based on rational and humanistic ideals and values

The truth or falsity of moral judgments, or their justification, is not absolute or universal, but is relative to the traditions, convictions, or practices of a group of persons.

thumb_orange_bullet to promote skeptical inquiry

Skeptical inquiry, in the classic sense, pertains to the critical examination of evidential claims of the para- or super-normal.

thumb_orange_bullet to provide community for atheists

We provide forums and discussion groups for atheists in Kenya connect with others

thumb_orange_bullet to foster public acceptance of atheists in Kenya

We seek to correct the prevailing negative perception about atheist in the public eye (we are NOT satanists, devil-worshippers, immoral, e.t.c)

thumb_orange_bullet to organize activities, such as forums for discussion, guest speakers, and debates

 We want to encourage debate in areas such as skepticism, science, morality,  religion, atheism and philosophy

thumb_orange_bullet  to engage in social issues affecting its membership and the wider community

 To demonstrate compassion for our fellow Kenyans irrespective of religious affiliation

— Our Values

At the heart of everything we do are our organization values. We stand by them being the
set of behaviors that we expect all our members to embrace to further our ambitions and our objectives.

We Challenge : Because we are skeptical, we challenge un-examined positions, stances, beliefs and traditions.

We Learn: We want to promote science. We’re constantly learning, looking for new knowledge and new information.

We Influence: We want to influence society to embrace critical thinking, reason and logic. We want to make a difference.

      hi kiptoo
      you got it all wrong from the very first time. God didn’t call you to be a Christian but he did call you to be his child through and in Christ.
      God was, God is and will always be. think again

    I was born in a Christian family and knew nothing but christianity … but ever since i just dont understand the principalities that revolve around it . Free they say but not the freedom which i thought i would have, tho am facing opposition from everyside but i have seen the light of knowledge to understand and choose whatever i know is right …being an atheist has given me great knowledge that i have never experienced

      I agree and especially if this God is supposed to know what humans will turn up to be, why create faulty beings, then require them to seek mercy, forgiveness to avoid an eternal damnation to a hellish fire. Religion is about FEAR and submission. How can a child be born with sin? then grow up trying to cleanse those sins so he/she can inherit some apartments in heaven, it dont make sense, N all you need to be rent free is pray, believe to a point of being psycho, and talk gibberish, with an aide of a GHOST that is supposedly holy lol

    I have fundamental differences and objections about the bible. I mean you’re promised of heaven when you’re saved but then even as a saved Christian following the Biblical teachings to the letter you are not assured of heaven. So is this not psychological game of some sought?
    Who even believes in a bible rewritten by emperor Constitine or what was his name.
    Heaven is not even guaranteed. hahhaha
