chess in the ghetto


More than just chess: Comrades Chess Katanga’s vision for Katanga’s children: We’re not just teaching chess – we’re building brighter futures for the children of Katanga slum. Our 3-month program hosted at Katanga Community School equips kids with valuable skills like strategy, critical thinking, and social connections through chess tournaments. But it’s not a one-time effort. We’ll keep running these programs until we see a lasting positive impact on the entire community. Even children who aren’t in school are welcome, and we’ll strive to get them back on the path to education. Join us in creating a ripple effect of positive change through chess in Katanga!
