“To support the youth bridge development and to help the youth, offering them some facilities participating the WBF events, we created a specific Youth Fund for the youth activities and in addition to the income from the Pro Youth Simultaneous Tournament, we decided to reserve to this fund a percentage of the annual profit.
In Chennai we decided to create a new “Developing Fund”. The WBF Seminars represent the first action following the creation of the Fund. I hope that this initiative will be appreciated by you, reinforcing my personal feeling that this is the better way, not only to offer a support to organisation and management of the activity both of the Zones and their NBOs, but above all to work together, to exchange ideas and experiences and finally to made them full part of the WBF family.
As you know and as I am never tired to repeat, our main challenge is the youth development.”
Gianarrigo Rona, WBF President
