Story

Mohammed Saliah is a National Level Chess player with International Fide rating of 1463, but born blind. He has won several chess championships at the state and national levels. Saliah has the ability to play with multiple people simultaneously by memorizing up to 10 boards. He is currently pursuing his LLB and his dream is to start a chess academy where he could support people to refine their skills in chess and giving training on techniques to improve memory and thinking power. Despite having such invaluable talent, he has no income to support his family. His father and two sisters are also visually challenged. Most people who watch his game, congratulate him, sympathise and some rarely offer donations but no one has really come forward to help him create a stable income by starting his own venture in the field of chess. Saliah is 100 % visually challenged. However, most of his accolades were achieved not as a participant in that category! The funds raised here would go towards helping Mohammed Saliah build a chess academy that would help him and his family get a stable income.
