Tools is organizing a movie night as a fund-raising event for our project in Tanzania.
For this occasion we selected a movie called: Queen of Katwe. We hope to see as much people as possible enjoying this movie with us.
The date for the event will be the 20th of June, Wednesday at 7:45pm. Tools will provide refreshment as well as good company.
Queen of Katwe
Living in Katwe, a slum in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle for 10-year-old Phiona, her mother Nakku Harriet and younger members of her family. She and her younger brother help their mother sell in the market and scavenge for food and water. She also helps care for a new baby brother. Her world changes one day when she meets Robert Katende at a missionary program. Katende coaches soccer and teaches children to play Chess at a local center. Curious, Phiona approaches and learns the game. She becomes fascinated with it and soon becomes a top player under Katende’s guidance.
Over several years, her success in competitions and tournaments leads to higher-level competitions, stress, and identity issues. Phiona must learn more than the game as she is exposed to life outside Katwe. Her education, both formally and informally, continues as she dreams of gaining escape from poverty for herself, her mother and siblings.
