Highlights From Our Last Chess Event

Published Jun 07, 2023

Chess is more than just a game. It has the power to transform lives and empower individuals. Recently, we had the privilege of hosting an extraordinary event with ChessinslumsAfrica, where chess enthusiasts came together to celebrate the game and make a positive impact. 

In this blog post, we’ll share some highlights from the event, including inspiring stories from the ChessinslumsAfrica kids and the exciting opportunities that unfolded.

The event, which commenced promptly at 12 p.m., kicked off with a delightful icebreaker where everyone had the chance to introduce themselves. Following the introductions, the event seamlessly transitioned into an exciting chess session. Participants paired up with their partners, ready to engage in strategic battles on the chessboard. For those who were new to the game, the ChessinslumsAfrica kids took the initiative to teach them the rules and tactics of chess, creating an inclusive and supportive environment for everyone to learn and enjoy.

The event fostered a sense of community and connection among all attendees. Chess enthusiasts of different backgrounds and skill levels came together, sharing strategies, bonding over their love for the game, and building lasting friendships. It was a vibrant atmosphere filled with positive energy and a collective belief in the power of chess to create meaningful change.

One of the most remarkable aspects of the event was hearing the stories of resilience and determination from the ChessinslumsAfrica kids. Through interviews, they shared their journeys, the challenges they overcame, and how chess played a transformative role in their lives. These stories remind us of the incredible impact this game can have, offering hope and opportunities to those who need them most.

In line with our dedication to supporting these talented individuals, we are thrilled to announce that several deserving ChessinslumsAfrica kids were granted scholarships for our upcoming summer tech bootcamp. These courses, part of our kids’ program at Walure Academy, will provide them with valuable skills and knowledge to excel in the world of technology. This scholarship program aims to empower them with the skills needed to thrive in the ever-evolving tech industry. We are excited to witness their growth and success.

Looking Ahead:

The success of this event has only strengthened our commitment to empowering individuals through chess. We have more exciting events and initiatives planned to continue fueling our passion for the game. We invite you to join us on this incredible journey and be part of the positive impact we can create together.


The recent chess event was a testament to the transformative power of chess and its ability to inspire, connect, and empower. The stories shared by the ChessinslumsAfrica kids were a poignant reminder of the potential within each individual waiting to be unleashed. As we move forward, we remain dedicated to providing opportunities, training, and support to help these talented individuals thrive in the tech industry and beyond. Together, we can create a brighter future, one chess move at a time.

Stay tuned for more updates and inspiring stories as we continue this incredible journey.
