The Giving Circle Africa now teaches chess in both its Busoga and Kagoma Gate Schools. The children embrace the game as a fun challenge, and gives them the opportunity to visit other parts of Uganda. For the teachers, it's a very effective means to teach logic and problem solving skills.
We are now seeking contributions and sustaining sponsorships to total $5,000 per year to cover the annual operating costs for the school chess clubs.
These funds will pay for:
- Robert Katende and his coaches to travel from Kampala to coach the students.
- Transporting the students to area chess tournaments
- Room and board when away at tournaments
- Admission fees
- Tee shirts and simple uniforms for the participants.
