(Photograph) - A new generation is learning to play one of the world's oldest board games to raise funds for pupils in Africa. A national schools' Oware competition, sponsored by 'The TES', will be held this month at London's Commonwealth Institute. The mathematics game originated in Africa at least 5,000 years ago and is similar to draughts. Details and an entrance pack, which costs pound;10, are available from Link Community Development at Unit 39, Kings Exchange Business Village, Tileyard Road, London N7 9AH. Telephone 020 7691 1818. www.lcd.org.uk. Oware will also feature in 'The TES' maths curriculum supplement on September 21. Photograph by ZAK WATERSINSIGHT
