Positive Humanism and Humanist Schools in Uganda

A stimulating and thought-provoking talk by Steve Hurd about the challenges of developing Humanist schools in Uganda answering key ethical questions such as: Why should humanists set up schools in Africa at all? What is ‘Positive Humanism’? Are they teaching humanism or simply delivering education in a humanistic way? Should they mimic religious schools and employ only humanist teachers and accept only humanist pupils?

From ‘loos at school’ to the ‘Golden Rule’ – what the priority?

Steve has been a teacher and educator all his working life and is passionate about supporting the Humanist Schools project in Uganda. He will have just returned from a visit to the schools so come and listen to what's happening on the ground.

Location: Ealing Quaker Meeting House.

Monthly socials

On the first Thursday of every month from 7:30pm, join us for socialising and relaxed conversation about anything and everything at Crispins Wine Bar in Ealing.

This is mostly a quiet, sit-down affair perfect for discussions about the issues of the day.

Two or three committee members are regularly present. These socials are often a point-of-entry for people previously unfamiliar with the humanist community and/or with WLHS. We always look forward to welcoming such new attendees in particular, whatever their world view.


Main monthly meetings

On the third Thursday of every month except August, we have our main meeting at Ealing Quaker Meeting House, for which there is a £4 attendance fee (£3 for WLHS members) to cover venue hire costs. The upcoming programme for these meetings is given below:


If you have a Facebook account, please like and follow our page, it has an “Events” section which is updated regularly.

The advantage of having a Facebook account is that you can interact with fellow WLHS supporters/members, and the committee, by sharing links and commenting on things others have shared. Also, you can RSVP to events.

You can join our e-mail list to receive monthly (or rarely, a little more frequent than that) emails from the WLHS committee with details of the latest news and events.

If you would like to be added to the email list, please send us an email to request addition.
