Disney’s Queen of Katwe is a story of hope. It shows the power of combining the talents, hard work and determination of those currently trapped in poverty, with the right encouragement, advocacy and support from those seeking to help them fulfil their potential. Phiona’s particular story of success through chess is exceptional, but the principle is universal: enabling people to develop and use their talents can achieve great things.
