On Monday April 3rd, Beautiful World will be hosting a movie screening for Toronto high school youth and their educators and/or mentors. We will be hosting a special screening of the Disney film, The Queen of Katwe with the queen herself - Phiona Mutesi. Phiona grew up in the slums of Katwe in Uganda, and through a local sports outreach program learned to play chess while seeking a hot meal to eat. She has since become a national chess champion and candidate master. Her life story is the inspiration for the film. 

This inspiring evening will include a screening, movie snacks, Q&A with Phiona and her coach and mentor, Robert Katende, and the opportunity to meet Phiona and take pictures. 

This is a great opportunity to hear an incredible story from a real-life hero and make a positive change in the lives of girls in sub-Saharan Africa.

À propos de cet organisme

At Beautiful World, we believe hope begins with education. That is why we support girls living in poverty in Uganda, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone to pursue high school, college and university programs. Each scholarship provides everything a girl needs to succeed in school, ranging from tuition to toothpaste. We then take it one step further to offer additional support through programs like mentorship, employment training, and medical care. As all of their needs are supported by Beautiful World, the girls we support can focus entirely on their studies instead of worrying about basic survival. With the knowledge and experience gained through education, these remarkable girls graduate with the skills to become the next generation of leaders, bringing hope to their communities.
