Ian Wilkinson sends us this:

In the last few months alone our chess-in-schools population has grown by several thousand due to the work done by the Magnificent Chess Foundation, a charitable body of which I am the Chairman. The demand for chess is very high and currently vastly exceeds our ability to cope due to limited resources.

At present we are teaching about ten thousand children in the schools. This is tremendous from our point of view having regard to the total population in Jamaica of roughly 2.5 million people.
