Chess at school in Madagascar (season 2) - News

Arthur and Valère are back from their trip to Madagascar and we are pleased to see that everything went perfectly well.

Chess lessons were given accordingly to the plan and as shown on the picture below the French/English poster with the pieces name (available here) offered in June made a long road from Paris. 

But the unexpected good news comes from the NGO Docenda and the exciting project to built a new school . . . in which chess sets will be available for students.

Chess at school in Madagascar - 2

When the movie is good, you get a chance to have a season 2 coming on the screen.
All the same for ChessSolidarity and Madagascar.

Year 1, the exciting adventure with En scène pour Mada got an happy end and our musketeers were invited to receive a Chess Initiator diploma from the French Chess Federation (photo below + article). 

Year 2, Arthur and Valere started a 5 month session about "How to teach chess". Then, they will fly to Madagascar in July.

We assume that children in Madagascar will pretty soon produce a world chess champion.
