Sydwell Mayekiso lives close to Impendulo Primary in Kayelitsha, Cape Town. He noticed how many primary school learners loitered around in the streets after school and started planning how to get more involved in getting these learners involved in a positive, productive extra-curricular activity. Being an avid chess player himself and actively involved in the chess world, Sydwell contacted TSMFL early in 2016 for helping his vision. In July 2016, TSMFL visited and sponsored chess equipment to Impendulo Primary to make Sydwell’s vision a realityImpendulo Primary.

Since then, chess players of Impendulo has developed into a highly competitive team who is palming in victories at tournaments.

A Community chess team has also been established and developed.

TSMFL feels so privileged to have been part of this process and wishes the Impendulo Chess Team all the best for the future!
