African Working Group

The African Working Group has watched with keen interest the zeal with which young Africans promote the ideals of Humanism amidst crass religiosity through their activities. To assist them in achieving more, we are poised to utilize the partnership and collaboration tools of organizational growth and development, on our platform, so as to achieve our common goal of popularizing Humanism in Africa.
