Thanks to Barbara Stevens, Kasiisi Project Literacy Director, everyone also went to see Queen of Katwe – a great new Disney movie, based on a true story about a girl from the Kampala slums who became a chess champion – we highly recommend it. The  wonderful film maker Mira Nair  has produced another beautiful film.
