Seasoned chess player Tunde Onakoya started the 'Chess in Slums' project last September in a rundown neighbourhood of Lagos. The goal of the club is to provide a space to play and learn the game for the young inhabitants of the slum, many of whom are not in school and work to support their families. Some of the most impressive players may even have the chance to win sponsorship to get back into education.
