PART TWO: ORGANISATION DESCRIPTION (REQUIRED):

A humanist in Northern Uganda, formerly Humanist Empowerment of Livelihoods in Uganda (HELU), remains the only organized Secular organization in Northern Uganda. We have been founded on the basis of the fundamental ethical understanding of the world provided by the overarching humanist framework with respect for individual autonomy and dignity, a rational understanding of ourselves, the importance of scientific methodology, findings, and substantiated, a respect for human rights. In short, human beings are the same people every day, everywhere, who must coexist without prejudice. Since its foundation and transition from HELU into Humanists NUg, the organization has transformed lives since 2009 with many of the beneficiaries being vulnerable women in the post war poverty ravaged society in Gulu, Northern Uganda. A society strongly beholden to beliefs in and the consequences of witchcraft and religious dogma.
In the past, Humanists in Northern Uganda trained and empowered over 80 women in Koch-Ongako, Coope, Onyama and Te-tugu in Tailoring, Hairdressing, Baking, Human Rights, Business management, and counseling. Those who trained in Hair dressing were given equipment for start-up. Those who trained in tailoring were provided with sewing machines and materials.
Forty Six hurts were constructed in the villages of Coope and Koch Ongako for the homeless girls.
Humanists in Northern Uganda is currently operating Ongako Secular Pre-Primary School in Oganko Sub-County in Omoro District. Our Preschool section has K1, K2, and K3 and Primary Section has P1 and P2. We once in awhile conduct freethoughts discussions depending on availability of funds.
