I really want to thank AAI for their continuous help after my husband’s (Mubarak Bala) disappearance since 28th April, 2020. AAI has been helping me both financially and emotionally because Mubarak was taken away when our son was 6 weeks old.

AAI came to my aid from the very moment I have contacted them, emotionally, financially, and finally to safety. They did help me survive and supported me emotionally when I had no one to lean on! I will forever be thankful for them and will never forget what they did for me.

Atheist Support Network

Do you have the freedom to believe or not believe in a religion? In many countries, nonbelievers do not have this freedom, and in thirteen countries, nonbelievers face arrest or a death sentence!
Atheist Alliance International has been working to help atheists and ex-Muslims for years but we significantly ramped up our efforts in 2019 by developing the Atheist Support Network (ASN).

Africa is on the rise economically but faces significant challenges in education. By 2030, over 230 million jobs on the continent will require digital skills. Unfortunately, the latest State of Global Education Update reports that nearly 9 out of 10 children in Sub-Saharan Africa cannot read and comprehend a basic text by the age of 10, representing a severe crisis. To ensure this generation can contribute to economic growth, access to basic, secondary, tertiary, technical, and vocational education is essential.
In Uganda, Humanist schools have demonstrated that progress is possible even under difficult circumstances such as limited budgets, high population growth, and cultural barriers to education for women and girls.
The Webinar highlights the importance of Humanist Education in Africa. We'll hear from some of the experts in the Humanist education system and their experience.

Atheism is a Ground for Asylum

In a very important decision by a Greek Court, atheism has been recognized as a legitimate ground for claiming asylum!  This is the first time a Greek court has made this determination, and we believe, a first anywhere in the world. Atheism is now recognised as a ground for the vulnerability of a person in a fundamentalist religious state.
It can now be argued, in Europe at least, that atheists are at special risk in some Islamic countries and, consequently, need to be protected.
