Kaieteur News – Raj Jewellery has supported the Guyana Chess Federation with a donation of $100,000 towards the ChessKid programme. This will aid in boosting chess development among youths across Guyana.
FM Anthony Drayton was on hand to accept the cheque on behalf of the Federation on Saturday October 1st during a chess exhibition at the Giftland Mall.
ChessKid.com is a virtual platform used by the GCF to introduce young players to the game of chess with puzzles, lessons, educational videos and unlimited live chess. It also allows children to play against players from other schools around their age and skill level.
Right now, over 200 local youths are actively engaged on the platform.
A normal ‘gold’ license allows children to access an unlimited number of learning resources. Donations such as this, allows the Guyana Chess Federation to provide more children with access to this free of cost.
This contribution will be significant to the development of our junior players in Guyana. The Guyana Chess Federation has seen membership more than triple this year due to efforts of the Federation’s hard-working team to bring chess to more schools outside of Region Four.
Raj’s Jewellery was established in 1992 and has since retailed the finest hand-crafted luxury jewellery using all high quality gold and diamonds, with over 25 years of experience in hand crafting breathtaking and authentic jewellery.
The Federation is elated to partner with them as the sport continues to develop in Guyana.
