Where is it 


How does it work

The business executives will get to know the kids through chess. They will play together in a Hand & Brain tournament on August 25th and then the business executives will sponsor the child that they play with. The sponsorships can differ slightly depending on the need but can include, food, housing, school fees, clothes, internet access, laptops, chess equipment, chess training, books, travel expenses and so on.

Hand & Brain

Is a chess variant intended to be played by pairs where one player is a hand and the other player is the brain. The brain calls out a piece or a pawn (for example, “bishop”)  and the hand should then choose which bishop to move and where. In this tournament the adults will be the hand and the kids the brain.

Why should I participate  

This tournament is an excellent way to have fun, promote chess and to combine your chess interest with making the world a better place, by forever changing the lives of talented kids from poor backgrounds and give them a chance to pursue their chess skills and get out of poverty.
