We had the pleasure of meeting Darius and Coach Yaada where we talked about coaching programme and our synergies around discipline in youth.
We also met Danny Anderson, UK Cruiser-weight Champion who is also keen to support DIDA in our Boxing programme and objectives.
We endeavor to work with all our stakeholders to ensure we inform the local communities of our strategy and progress

To increase the number of people committed to helping DIDA's objectives.
Leverage 'Best Practice' from our partners within the industry around the world.
Most importantly DIDA aims to produce both amateur and professionals in each discipline while collaborating with forward-thinking organisations and stakeholders to promote player discovery and cross pollination opportunities
Transforming children's lives and restoring hope through the game of Chess
Our passionate grassroots first approach and network can produce the guidance and infrastructure needed to take the raw athleticism and talent we know many Ugandan youths have and convert them into decorated Chess players or masters.
