The Western Cape

The Western Cape is a South African province with coasts bordering the Indian and Atlantic oceans. It's known for the port city of Cape Town, set beneath Table Mountain, part of a national park of the same name.

The total land area of the province is 129,462 square kilometers about 10.6% of the country's total. It is roughly the size of England. Its capital city and largest city is Cape Town, and some other major cities include Stellenbosch, Worcester, Paarl, and George.

The Program

During our initial survey, we found that many of the kids were not receiving proper training. To address this issue and provide means for all 72 children in need, Chessable has provided devices that will allow them to do their practice sessions each day while load shedding is happening!

Thanks to Chessable these kids’ week in and week out are not only going through guided training but they have annual Chessable premium and relevant Chessable courses for other individual needs.
