Albania - chess in schools program
Monday, 10 August 2015 20:56
dr.1Albania is the latest country to start a chess in schools program. An agreement was recently signed between the Ministry of Sports and Education, the Albanian Chess Federation, ECU and FIDE. The program, already in pilot, will start in earnest in September.

The first phase of the project will be rolled out in the cities of Tirana, Durres, Elbasan, Berat, Lushnje, Shkodra, Kucova, Vlora, Saranda.

There will be 10 schools involved in this first phase.

The initial catalyst for the project was the presence of FIDE officials at the Women's World Championship in Tirana. That enabled a number of meetings to take place and now all the work is starting to come to fruition.

The recent merger of the Sports and Education ministries has also facilitated the development of the program.

We have more information about the project and the agreement, as well as photos in the 'read more' section below.

Our thanks to Majlinda Pilinçi, Secretary General of FSHSH (the Albanian Chess Federation) for all this material.
