Democratic Republic of Congo Zuzane Makamako (center), 10, intensely plays a child brain game called “Chuka” with her friends Anton Kambilose (left), 11, and Clémence Mande, 9, at Zuzane’s home in Kisangani, Democratic Republic of Congo. Players take turns attempting to capture all the stones placed between them. The children say their parents don’t allow them to play when they’re in school, so they enjoy the game as often as possible during summer vacation.
