Initial projects were put forward as follows:
Chess in prisons and chess in Shelters.
SOC will also work with projects in other areas. Another main objective is to preserve the institution of the family. The children will be given the opportunity to involve themselves in an activity which will be beneficial to both themselves as well as their community, keeping them away from electronic games, computers, facebook and other such modern brain draining activities. Chess is a great ‘exit’ from all this. Studies that have been carried out in many countries have shown that the systematic study of chess leads to personal improvement and increase in achieving the academic as well as educational targets of the children.
