Sesame Flyers International Is 40 Years Old


Honors CTN’s Publisher Michael Babwar

(BROOKLYN, New York): One of the Brooklyn Caribbean-American community’s premier non-profits dedicated to “loving a kid every day” recently celebrated its 40th anniversary with a glitzy and well-attended celebration at El Caribe Country Club. The event, billed as “The Caribbean Essence Awards and Showcase,” was also attended by New York City’s Mayor, Eric Adams, and included Assembly members Rodneyse Bichotte-Hermelyn and Monique Chandler-Waterman as well as scores of supporters and honorees.

CARIBBEAN TIMES NEWS Publisher, Michael Babwar, was among the honorees and honored for his outstanding commitment and years-long dedicated service to the Caribbean immigrant community. Mike comes from Trinidad and Tobago and has been in the United States for over 40 years now, and has been a stalwart pillar of support and now heads the “Authentic Voice” of the Caribbean in New York City.

“This is a great honor not just for me and my team but for all those who work daily to inform, educate and promote the Caribbean immigrant community in New York and the United States. CARIBBEAN TIMES NEWS showcases the community’s positives – just as Sesame Flyers International has been doing for 40 years. I congratulate the organization, especially Curtis Nelson, its hard-working executive director, for doing a great job!” said Mike Babwar.

For his part, Mr. Nelson said: “For four decades, we have been at the forefront of community service, inspired by the visionary spirit of our late founder, Mr. Joseph Charles. His mission is to create a haven for children and showcase the vibrant culture of the Caribbean lives on, and we couldn’t be prouder of this legacy.” He added that as Executive Director, “I am deeply grateful for your ongoing support and dedication. Our journey would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of our staff, volunteers, and the

entire community. Let us continue to work together, hand in hand, to create an even brighter future for our youth and community at large.”
