the children from the chess program

With years of teaching and playing experience, Chess Coach Lohanathan 
FIDE National Instructor of Seremban has trained many students to enjoy 
and also to excel in the game. Apart from his teaching commitments, 
Coach Loha has been contributing time and money to a number less fortunate
students. One such centre that he helps at is the I.J. Sisters Learning Centre 
in Kampung Pasir, Seremban, a home that helps poor and down trodden children.
