The Nevis Book Fair will be held on 27 July 2012 under the theme “Breaking Barriers, Building Capacity, Strengthening the Bond between the School and the Community.”
It is being partly sponsored by CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank which said it truly believes that assisting in the development of the region’s children and youth is the ultimate investment for the future.
Assistant Customer Service Manager of CIBC First Caribbean International Bank, Nevis Mrs. Maresa Nisbett, stated that the CIBC FirstCaribbean was excited to be part of the exercise, which was in line with the bank’s mission of being “First for Communities” in the countries in which it operates. She was at the time handing over the sponsorship cheque to the Nevis Public Library officials, (organizing agency of the fair), from the financial institution.
She also commented that such a program would positively impact the youth and would provide an opportunity for the bank to connect with the youth in society, and to make a valid contribution.
CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank’s programmes are geared to nurture Caribbean communities, and range from Adopt-a–Cause, Unsung Heroes and Scholarship programmes, to The Junior Achievers Programme and Hurricane Relief activities, revealed the bank representative.
