kocaeliKocaeli is a province about 100km East of Istanbul. The capital is Izmit (Kocaeli) which has about 20% of the total population of 1,500,000.

The Turkish Chess Federation signed a protocol in 2012 with the Municipality and Directorate of Education in Kocaeli.

Now, when children start primary school, they receive a chessboard, chess set and chess book. 

To date, about 100,000 gift packs have been presented.

The TSF have used in the past the slogan 'every house a sports centre.' That is coming to pass in Kocaeli, at least every house with a child in it.
