The MiniChess program is currently being implemented at 200+ schools in South Africa with 50,000+ learners doing it every week in school time. We expect to triple the number of participants within the next year, with many more sponsors and universities now showing interest – University of Stellenbosch, University of Johannesburg and the North West University are starting with studies in 2013/14.
Marisa van der Merwe won the Shoprite Checkers Women of the Year Award 2012 for the MiniChess program, in the category Education (top-educational program for 2012). It is also accredited by Chessa, FIDE and many NGO’s using MiniChess as game-changer in early childhood development.
The Kasparov Chess Foundation-Africa endorses the MiniChess program, and also incorporates the program into their roll-outs in various countries. MiniChess is also partnered with the Entrust Foundation.
To date the program enjoys much support in South Africa, with President Zuma as the patron and the Minister of Basic Education, behind it.
