Disney Movie ‘Queen of Katwe’: A Real-Life Story of God Leading Uganda Girl to Become National Chess Champion Through Sports Outreach Ministry

A girl living in slums of Uganda had an encounter with God through an evangelistic Sports Outreach Ministry (SOM) which introduced her to chess. As Phiona Mutesi grew in Jesus, she found that He has gifted her to play chess -- and to be marvelous at the game. She then goes on to become a national champion. This is the real-life story "Queen of Katwe" produced by Disney, where Mutesi is played by actress Lupita Nyong'o.
