angola-withms.mariaaugustadasilvamartinsWe have previously reported on several CiS projects that are under way in Africa, for example in Algeria, Botswana, Ethiopia, Malawi, Mauritania...

President Ilyumzhinov has recently visited several more countries in Africa with a view to getting chess in schools projects started. The most exciting one is probably Angola. President Ilyumzhinov met with the State Secretary of the Ministry for Higher Education Ms. Maria Augusta da Silva Martins (the Minister was not in the country at the time) and the Minister of Youth and Sports Mr. Gonçalves Manuel Muandumba. At the meetings the leaders discussed the possibility of mutual cooperation, in particular, the training of specialists in the Russian sports universities, rendering the methodological and systematic assistance on CiS programme, holding the seminars for arbiters, trainers and organizers. 

Of course, we are excited about another CiS project, but also by the enthusiasm of the Angola National Olympic Committee (and many other African NOCs) to support the inclusion of chess in the Winter Olympic Games.
