KCF would like to congratulate Purity Maina from Kenya who was awarded her International Arbiter title during the FIDE Presidential Board meeting held in Moscow at the end of March!

By fulfilling all the IA title requirements, Purity has become the very first female international arbiter from the African continent!

We congratulate her on this incredible achievement and wish her well as she continues to fulfill her arbiter functions in her home country and abroad.

Purity also recently qualified as one of our first licensed MiniChess trainers in Kenya and she is currently actively involved with the roll-out of the MiniChess program in Nairobi.
