Kaya's Kids Chess Team - Burkina Faso, West Africa

After three years of monthly financial support and patient planning we are thrilled to introduce the Kaya’s Kids chess program in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The ICN community could not be more excited and honored to partner with the Paradise Orphanage on this life changing cause!

Maybe one day there will be a cross continent match, where our NYC students can welcome their team for a competition or we can head to Africa and experience their culture while sharing the great game of chess! Either way we wish them the best of luck in their training
