Wian's world chess championship

Wian Schutte is my nephew and a u/15 South African chess player.  In August 2017 he competed in his fist international tournament, the African Schools Individual Championships in Zimbabwe, and won the gold medal at the tournament for u/15 players.  He now qualifies to compete in the World Schools Individual Chess Championship as the only South African to qualify for this prestigious event.   The World Schools Individual Chess Championship are being held in Durres, Albania from the 21 April to 1 May 2018. 

To make Wian’s dream come true of competing against the best u/15’s in the world we need help in order to get him there.  All donations will be delivered to Wain's parents to pay for the flights, tournament registration and accommodation for Wian and an accompanying adult.  Your help in getting Wian to the tournament will be much appreciated and remember every cent counts so no matter how small or how big every bit helps to add up to the total required.
