University of Nairobi Humanists and Freethinkers is a group of students at the University of Nairobi supporting the ideals of reason, science, critical thinking, free inquiry and humanist values.
Our vision is a Humanist world; a world in which human rights are respected and everyone is able to live a life of dignity. The mission of University of Nairobi Humanist and Freethinkers is to build and represent the student Humanist movement that defends human rights and promotes Humanist values.
Towards achieving these values, we embrace the following principles:
