Project Description

hybrid – Jenkins Park or Zoom

Ann is on the board of directors and the educ consultant/ leader for education with The Giving Circle here in Saratoga. She has had the privilege of connecting with the biggest names in Chess like Gary Kasparov and the Ugandan Chess leader Robert Katende. His story and his protege, Phiona  Mutesi from the slums of Kampala, Uganda  are the subject of a Disney movie, The Queen of Katwe. It tells the story of life as a Ugandan child much like those of our 2 village schools there and what the opportunity to learn and play chess can do for their lives.
