Get Amahle to African Youth Chess Tournament

Personal message

Young Chess Warrior needs our help to participate at the African Games

My best friend Amahle Zenzile is a young chess prodigy from the Crossroads Township in Cape Town.  Earlier this year she qualified to participate at the South African Closed Chess Championship. Her dream of representing South Africa was made possible through your kind donations to her Backabuddy campaign that I started for her.  Amahle went on to finish 5th in her age group and she achieved her South African Colours.

The South African team leaves shortly for the African Youth Tournament to be held in Namibia and Amahle desperately needs help financing her trip.

The African Youth Tournament takes place from the 14th to the 22nd December 2019.  Amahle and her coach, Thando Hlakula, will travel with the South African team and the money raised will be used for their airfare and accommodation.

Coach Thando is the founder of the Crossroads Chess Club.  He has dedicated his life to helping children from his community rise above their circumstances through the wonderful game of Chess.  

My beautiful friend Amahle has a warrior spirit and she is so deserving of this opportunity.  She is a shining beacon of hope to other children in her community. I am inspired by her every single day and I would love to help her on the next part of her journey.

Thank you so much,

Love and blessings

Trinity

2 years ago, Amahle Zenzile (11) from Cape Town started playing chess for the Crossroads Chess Club.  She is an amazing player and it didn't take her long to become one of the best players in her age group. 

Last year she qualified to play at the South African Junior Chess Championship Closed where her dream of representing South Africa was realized through kind donations on BackaBuddy!
Amahle went on to finish 5th in her age group and she achieved her South African Colours.
Now Amahle has been chosen to attend the African Youth Tournament to be held in Namibia!
