Learning material in print format

From the sales of the book collections “Play and learn” and “Chess for everybody”, at least all of the author’s rights are sent to the charitable causes of the purchasing country.
In Spain, these books are available to schools and clubs at production cost (printing + postage and packaging) with the addition of an economic margin towards charity (initially, this profit has been set at 1 Euro per book and is donated to Down Syndrome associations).
Individual purchasing is carried out at book shops, authorized chess dealers or Balagium Editors at the price shown on the books’ fact sheets.
The profits of these individual sales go towards the development of the Educachess project.
In other countries, the distribution and spreading of these printed books depends on signed agreements with other associations or foundations from those countries.
There is more information available in the “Types of collaboration” and “Types of agreements” sections.
