Queen of Katwe Children’s Education Fund, Kampala, Uganda

The Opportunity

Uganda’s own Madina Nalwanga, Kabanza Martin, and Ivan Jacobo recently starred in Disney’s Queen of Katwe film. These children, who were discovered in Kampala, stole both the movie and our hearts. They are incredibly talented kids with amazing potential. And this is just the beginning; there is so much more to come.

Last year, this fund ensured that each child was placed in a new school which was best suited to meet their academic needs. Now, we need your help to ensure that they are able to continue to pursue their educational aspirations. Help give these children a quality education so they can continue to reach for the stars.

The Plan

Our grant will provide:

  • A year of tuition for Madina, Martin, Ivan and Yvonne (Ivan’s sister)
  • Funds to cover transportation to and from their schools
  • Other important needs such as clothes, extracurricular activities, etc

The Reason

Forest Withcraft wrote “A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” Help us change the world by giving these children the opportunity to reach their full potential.
