Fly Kites Not Drones is a campaign which came from young people in Afghanistan who told us that the threat of armed drones were now making the beautiful blue skies a fearful sight for Afghan children. Drones work best on clear days where clouds do not obscure the cameras fitted on them, clear days are also considered perfect for kite flying.
