joycelynbonnie's Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Octavia Alfred and I live on a small island in the Caribbean name Dominica.I worked as a principal of a primary school in a poor rural area called Castle Bruce when I heard about Hands Across the Sea from an American friend. I filled in the information on the internet and the next thing I knew i got an answer and someone was promising me the most wonderful gift my students could ask for- books. we could hardly believe that we were going to receive new books from people we hardly knew- this was too good to be true.. but it was true. Then I understood that I was being moved to be the Principal of the Castle Bruce Secondary School, not too far away. I continue to correspond with Hands Across the sea. I told them I was being moved to a new school but PLEASE send the books to my primary school, because they need the books. Then the best thing happened again, they promised me books for the secondary school. So the students at the secondary who are mainly from the Carib Reserve and other areas which are poor can now borrow books from both school libraries and our students are walking around with a friend called "BOOK" tightly in their hands.Hands across the sea is the best. They did not send us discarded irrelevant books. they sent us new, interesting and relevant books. Thank you Hands Across the Sea, you made our children HAPPY.
