Raise Chess Academy (RCA) is a refugee youth-led community-based organization that unites refugees from different cultural backgrounds by Empowering refugee children/youth to overcome psychological trauma through chess and football activities. RCA was founded by Julien Mayele after losing his dad in 2020. This was the most painful and difficult situation for him and his family. He realized the power of sports and games in Empowering refugee children/youth to overcome different obstacles and learn soft skills that would help them in the future. Refugee children often finds its difficult to communicate with host communities and also adopt to the English system of Education which foces them to drop out of school, RCA saw this need and calculated that by providing these children with English language skills would tackle the luck of language barriers and reduce the rates of school drop out due to lack of badic English language.
