‘Project Checkmate aims to holistically develop the minds of the underprivileged and blind through chess, a game that unites all.'- Devanshi Rathi
Project Checkmate wishes to impart an education through chess. It wishes to touch the lives of underprivileged and blind students who are passionate about chess but do not have adequate exposure to participate in events and improve their skills. The project wishes to teach these children about the game and help them experience the feeling of playing competitively.
With the use of quality chess material like grandmaster books, games, online softwares, and videos, the project aims to instill a passion for chess into these young minds. The project also takes the students for various tournaments in and around New Delhi, India. Ultimately, our aim is to expand our model worldwide.
