 The  Actuality  of  Chess  Challenges:

Worldwide, 600 - 700 million people (1 billion over next 5 years) play chess. However, there are only 8 million registered chess players in all countries. For example, in the United States 45 million people are playing chess but only 85,000 (0.2%) active registered and just only 800 titled chess players.

Moreover, there are approximately 36 million individuals who have at least one disability: about 12 percent of the U.S. population.
