Irreligion in Uganda
Irreligion in Uganda is uncommon among Ugandans, as Christianity is the predominant faith. Only 0.9% of Ugandans claim no religion. Most Ugandans are considered religious and there is a great stigma attached to being a non-believer.
In February 2015 BiZoHa, the world’s first ‘free-thinker’ orphanage, was launched in the town of Mukhoy, Kasese district in western Uganda. The campaign to start the program was primarily funded by Zoltan Istvan and Hank Pellissier.
