This past Saturday two other Chess for Education Abroad volunteers and myself set off for their sites throughout Indonesia.  We will be starting several chess clubs in east Kalimantan (Borneo), South Kalimantan, and West Java.  I will be working in Bontang, East Kalimantan setting up several Western Chess clubs as well as the CEA’s first pilot XiangQi, or Chinese Chess, clubs.

More updates will follow about our progress in the coming weeks.  And, hopefully, the other CEA volunteers will be able to post updates on their own progress as well.


Thank you and Terimah Kasih
