Phiona Mutesi, right, a 14-year-old chess prodigy, at the Agape Church inside Katwe, the largest slum in Kampala, Uganda, Dec. 8, 2010. There are only seven chessboards at the church, and chess pieces are so scarce that sometimes an orphan pawn must stand in for a king. Mutesi lives in the slums of Uganda and is just now learning to read. But her instincts have made her a player to watch in international chess. Mutesi, a naturally talented chess player is coached by Robert Katende of Sports Outreach Ministry. The chess club meets at the Agape Church.
