Al Jazeera ~ Gert Corba ~ Uganda: Queen Of The Slums
Those who are born in the hopeless slums of Kampala start with a setback in life, and being born a girl doubles this setback.
In Kibuli, a slum community of single mothers and neglected children, the youth learn to survive the hard way.
But mostly they learn from a young age to accept their miserable situation.
This also applies to Phiona,14, who lives with her chronically-ill mother in a shack with walls made of corrugated iron.
But when a social worker teaches the poor girl how to play chess, her slum life takes an amazing turn.
