Vision and Mission


“Improved educational performance of as many children as possible, by unlocking their full mental and social capability.”


“To improve the cognitive and analytical abilities of youngsters by exposing them to the mental discipline provided by the game of chess. The programme intentionally links chess principles to life skills, mathematics, science and language.

Developing individuals who add value to his/her community.”


Tsogo Sun Moves for Life (TSMFL) is an initiative that uses chess as a tool for education which helps improve mathematics, science and problem-solving in children. TSMFL is passionate about education and believes that education is critical to any kind of development.

The implementation of chess as an educational intervention creatively links math, science and life skill concepts in a fun and exciting manner for the child. Chess builds character and team spirit; it unlocks the cognitive potential of the child, it introduces a child to essential life skills and the basics of strategic planning for life, career and business – yet, it does not need specialised facilities. Chess is inexpensive, and within the reach of children from all walks of life.
