xadrez - Chess that Brings Freedom
Wednesday, 31 August 2011 07:34
Our thanks to Prof. Charles Moura Netto for this inspirational video from Brazil - Chess that Brings Freedom - about a project for chess in prisons. Not strictly Chess in Schools, but the educational and social benefits of chess, which have been demonstrated in the schools programmes, are especially applicable to the prison population. Chess in Schools has previously mentioned work in prisons in Almeria and other parts of Spain.



























This video is in Portuguese, but it has sub-titles in English. Running time 2.29mn. Click on "read more" for more information about the programme which covers 22 prisons and 2000+ inmates.

Haiti InterschoolsWe are following President Kirsan's wishes in working to popularize chess in the schools. Since January we have really got down to business. On May 18 we had 15 teams, a total of 126 students, take part in the final of the National Interschools Championship.

Several schools will have chess as part of the curriculum, starting in October. We also sent two players to Canada for an arbiter's course. We could work even better if we had a few chess clocks.
