Help Amahle compete at the SA Junior Chess Championship Closed

Personal message

My friend Amahle Zenzile is 11 years old. She attends Imbasa Primary School in Cape Town.

2 years ago, Amahle started playing chess for the Crossroads Chess Club and we met at a tournament not long after that. Amahle is an amazing player. It didn't take her long to become one of the best players in our age group and last year we both qualified to play at the South African Junior Chess Championship held in Johannesburg. We all knew that Amahle would qualify there to go to the SAJCC Closed, where she can earn her SA colours, and she did!

Amahle's mom lives in the Eastern Cape and she only gets to see her once a year. She lives here in Cape Town with her Granny who works as a security guard. They just don't have the R12000 it will cost to get Amahle and her wonderful coach, Thando to Johannesburg in 2 weeks time to compete for her SA Colours. Coach Thando has tried so hard to raise the funds to help her, but they haven't had much success.

I want to help my friend because I know how much time she spends in training every single day, she works harder than any other chess player I know and she deserves to represent our country.

There are so few girls who play chess, it is a sport dominated by the boys and so when a girl like Amahle comes along, we should all support her!

*Funds will go directly to Crossroads Chess Club*

2 years ago, Amahle 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 held in Johannesburg.  

Now she has the opportunity to go to the SAJCC Closed to earn her SA colours!
