Literacy Gets a Lift from Christophe Harbour

By Katherine in Christophe Harbour Foundation, Community, St. Kitts

Christophe Harbour VP of Operations Jon Gersonde and Hands Across The Sea Founder Harriet Linskey with Cayon Primary students.

No one knew that when Harriet and Tom “T.L.” Linskey walked through the door of the real estates sales office five years ago looking for Wi-Fi that one chance meeting would lead to a long-term partnership in improving literacy throughout the Federation.

“We had just come from Antigua where we were encouraged by our efforts with libraries there,” said T.L. “I shared a story of one little girl who couldn’t read but came running up to me with a brand new book we’d delivered saying ‘I want...

Meet Robert Morris

By Katherine in Christophe Harbour Foundation, Community, St. Kitts

“I strive to make a positive impact on the community everyday.”

That’s Bobby Morris’ goal both on and off the clock. As Christophe Harbour’s Development Manager, Bobby oversees all the resort community’s major projects. One of Christophe Harbour’s longest employees, Bobby is responsible for everything from neighborhood infrastructure installation to resort building construction and existing renovation projects. He and his team provide the necessary backbone for neighborhoods and amenities to function, but also set the stage for the overall look and feel homeowners and their guests will enjoy at Christophe Harbour. That expertise is invaluable as both homeowners and builders embark on building private residences within Christophe Harbour. So much so...

Monkey Business

By Katherine in Christophe Harbour Foundation, Community, St. Kitts

The Christophe Harbour Foundation is pleased to support a new vervet monkey research initiative led by biological anthropologist and primatologist Dr. Kerry M. Dore.

Christophe Harbour sponsors new books for St. Kitts Primary Schools

By Katherine in Christophe Harbour Foundation

When Tom and Harriet Linskey walked into the Christophe Harbour sales office one day, we thought they were just stopping by to learn more about the luxury resort community and superyacht marina project. Little did we know, their arrival to our office was just the beginning of an amazing journey. The Linskeys are co-founders of an incredible organization, Hands Across The Sea, dedicated to raising literacy levels across the Caribbean. With a US $15,000 donation from the Christophe Harbour Foundation, Hands delivered thousands of new books to schools across St. Kitts this year. Seven primary schools were direct beneficiaries from the Christophe Harbour donation. We were honoured to be a part of this project and look forward to working with the Hands crew on other...

Vision Quest: For one Christophe Harbour Member Compassion is 20/20.

By Katherine in Christophe Harbour Foundation, Community, St. Kitts

The climate, the colors, and the fabulous vistas of St. Kitts can inspire us to do a great many things: hike lush trails, dive the deep, blue sea, picnic on the beach. It might even inspire us to change lives. Thanks to the generous spirit and surgical talent of one Christophe Harbour member, the future looks brighter for some very grateful children. Dr. Veronique Jotterand, a board certified pediatric ophthalmologist and strabismus surgeon, and her husband built the very first home at Christophe Harbour in 2009. Last year, upon meeting Dr. Patrick Martin, St. Kitts Chief Medical Officer, she was asked to examine a child with an eye problem that posed a diagnostic dilemma to local physicians. With more than two decades of experience through...
