East Africa Dorset Chess Appeal 261018‘Richard Tazwell contacted me through local chess circles and we met to discuss ‘CHESS AS A MECHANISM FOR PROMOTING COMMUNITY COHESIVENESS’.

It struck me there were so many good reasons to help with the cause.

I have lived and worked in Nigeria so have good cause to know at first hand how difficult is to fund a project like this. Richard has advised me his organisation has collected in excess of £70,000 over 6/7 years and assures this money has been received safely by their church in Kenya and distributed correctly.

Helping others that have very little and who no fault have been displaced and lost nearly all.

The advantages of playing chess in a refugee camp with little or poor facilities and are just waiting to return home or otherwise.

The benefits of playing chess to provide some fun and enjoyment and to develop others to achieve something at least from this terrible situation.

Finally, our opportunity to help others develop chess in another world and who knows one day you/I could be playing one of these people.
