Tunde Onakoya, a former Nigerian chess champion, is teaching children from one of the poorest communities in Lagos to play. It is a way to broaden your horizons and allow the best players to access scholarships. Every weekend they work to improve their performance, thanks to Onakoya, who himself grew up in a poor neighborhood. His charity Chess in Slums now wants to expand to other countries in Africa. Our colleagues from France 2 report, with Camille Nedelec and James Vasina from FRANCE 24.

A program prepared by Emerald Maxwell and Patrick Lovett.
