Dear Chess Friends!
This is to let you know that the CHESS FOR PEACE Program sponsored by FIDE and organized by the Foundation Peace & Sport, assisted by the NGO Colombianitos, went very well.
I travelled to Puerto Tejada and was able to inaugurate the Chess Center with many kids present. We all had a great time!

Thanks again to FIDE for promoting chess to underdeveloped areas of the world. This work deserves praise and truly helps those kids have better lives.
