Chess for Life

Chess for Life

Aug. 2017

In a chess academy in Katwe, a slum of Kampala, Volunteers distribute lunch and give free lessons in chess to children. They compare the chess game with the life: “only who predicts, reaches the goal in the end”. 

Lydia Nakato is one of the students: “Chess makes you smart,” she says. It helps her think faster. “I’m hard to beat,” she explains farther and laughs. “Some players even fear me.” At home she keeps her trophy safe, the trophy she won at a U-13 tournament. Her goal: to study later at the University in Kampala.
