School Chess Programs

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.
