Sponsors Community Project for Children hosted by Kite Engineer- Curvis Jeffers
BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS – APRIL 25, 2019 – Ensuring that the Easter tradition of Kite Flying continues in St. Kitts, Flow partnered with veteran kite engineer, Curvis Jeffers, to pass on the finer points of kite-making to children who would not normally have a chance to be exposed to this art.
Children from The Beach Allen, The Special Education Unit and The Children’s Home got a chance to learn first-hand from the master kite-maker as part of the annual two week ‘Kite Making Project’.
Mr. Jeffers has been actively engaged in this tremendous initiative for the past 24 years. Jeffers, who explained the intricate secrets to ensure the perfect kite flight to the participating children explains that, “I have been touching lives for the past 24 years and passing on an important cultural tradition. No matter how much technology advances nothing can compare to the creativity of the human spirit.”
During a brief ceremony to mark the end of the project, some thirty participants were presented with their hand-crafted kites. Flow Country Manager, Mr. David Lake said, “Such traditions are vital in helping to preserve our culture and heritage. We are truly elated to partner with Mr. Jeffers in creating these special learning moments that I know these young people will never forget.” Lake added, “On behalf of Team Flow, I want to commend Mr. Jeffers for his mastery and commitment to the traditional art of kite building.
I wish everyone across the Federation a happy Easter brightened by the colours of the beautiful kites created as part of this project.” Mr. Jeffers also expressed sincere gratitude to Flow for its continued support over the many years of this project, “I am very grateful to Flow for coming on board for another year and making this Kite Project a huge success.”
