Welcome to the pre-launching of the 2nd World Youth Chess for Peace Tournament in Ghana. I am the founder of MonRoi, a world leader in live chess technology. I am delighted to be here today and to have the opportunity to address with you the most important matter on the earth: the world peace – and this, through the game of chess.
We are delighted to announce that the Chess For Peace token is passed to Ghana and will go around the world. We are glad to partner with the Planet Three Peace Programme to host this magnificent tournament and we hope it will go a long way in promoting peace among the youth of Africa and the world as a whole.
This morning I woke up thrilled knowing that we are making a progress with our Chess for Peace project. Peace is essential for the progress and growth and without it we couldn't advance. With this tournament we are joining our responsibility in teaching others to live together in peace and harmony. I am looking forward to see more people joining us on our way.
There is a quote that Peace begins with a smile! :-) and this is what I hope for. I hope that this event will be filled with joy and happiness and that will enable the world to share with participants, organizers and sponsors more enlightened attitude. I am truly grateful and privileged for the chance to work with you and thankful to all of you for putting this wonderful event together.
Chess is a powerful tool to build life skills, increase self-esteem and self-confidence, improve social skills, and promote a fair play, tolerance and a culture of peace. Chess is a universal language in which there is one set of rules that unites everyone. Thank you Ghana, thank you Planet Three Peace Programme, thank you Abbey Emmanuel who impressed us with his letter at the first MonRoi Chess for Peace tournament in Montreal with HH the Dalai Lama.
From Canada, I hand over a torch of love, peace and joy to light up your hearts, with full confidence in you as the ambassadors of peace who will shine to the world the precious gift of peace.
