We are pleased to announce that DOCENDA, the french ONG who aim to built a school at Anjanojano (North west of Madagascar) as completed is work.

Children from the village have now a stone house made with local material. See more on Docenda web site.

Our young Ambassador Valère was able to teach and play chess this spring.  We were told that Fidi, the local young night watchman, who discover chess 2 years ago is still fascinated by the game. When he has no one to challenge he even plays against himself.  

Congratulation to Valère and to Irene Petit from Docenda who made a dream come true. ChessSolidarity is proud to be a small part of the story.
