Chess in Africa, let us make it happen

by Georgia Morris

We are on a mission to use Chess as a tool to show our love to the children and people of West Africa, specifically the West Coast where it has been offered to the ELITE only, meaning parents who have the means to afford it. People all over the world is making sure their children learn chess as it is helping their kids to succeed in school and life.

Please consider helping us make sure every child in West Africa have access to learning chess. We need money for chess supplies and to train and pay chess coaches. My friend Christopher A Major, an international Rotarian and a Board of Director of the The KWENI Project is taking a mission trip along with other members from the USA to do mission work utilizing Chess for children and Youth.


For more information, you may contact me, Christopher, Melanie Zate, and John Tra. We will be happy to set up a Zoom call with you to discuss this mission in more detail.


And if you are thinking what about the children in the USA right here in Little Rock. Glad you ask. Our Chess club at Mosaic Church • Little Rock on Colonel Glenn and University been teaching chess to children and youth free of charge every Tuesday from 5:30 to 7:00. During the COVID Epidemic, we went virtual and continue to teach free of charge children in state and out of State. If you have a child or know of children that you want to learn the game and play it with others, message me. We will be happy for them to join our club.
