THE BEST INVESTED 1%
When we bring games to children, of course, they repay us with smiles; but we also have the satisfaction to know that we help them grow stronger, with a sharpen mind, an expanded imagination, and fine motor skills.
We always look to contribute in projects that have a high added value. Sometimes we might chose to offer support for buying books or building a school, all with the same final purpose of creating better opportunities for children, to improve their chances for a better education and empower them to build a better future for themselves.

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
Many kids today are affected by executive functioning issues. This means they have trouble organizing and acting on information. More broadly, they lack the skills they need to plan, organize, remember things, prioritize, pay attention and get started on tasks.
Child psychologists think that card and board games improve children’s executive skills. In fact, they encourage parents to play with their children at home, instead of watching TV or doing homework for long hours.
For example, chess has proven to be an effective teaching method for kids with learning disabilities. Study reveals that students who received 4 hours of math and 1 hour of chess instruction each week, instead of 5 hours of math, showed more improvement in basic math skills like counting and addition.
