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.
