The upcoming Disney feature film "Queen of Katwe" tells the inspiring true story of Ugandan teenager Phiona Mutesi and her mentor, missionary Robert Katende, who transforms children's lives through the game of chess.
The Chess Academy and Mentoring Center began in the slums of Kampala, Uganda, after Katende, then a soccer coach, noticed the children watching from the sidelines of soccer matches he had organized. The mission of the "Queen of Katwe" outreach is to use the game to teach strategic thinking and planning that can be useful in everyday life. The center started with only five students and now has over 300 who gather daily across five separate slum locations.
The film stars Academy Award-winner Lupita Nyong'o and Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo, and highlights the impact Christian missions and outreach have on the people they serve. more >>
