Hands Across the Sea has assisted the Vieux-fort Infant School in Saint Lucia through the donation of new and relevant reading resources. The resources donated are currently being used in the school's library which was badly in need of an injection of new materials. I applaud this organization for this wonderful gesture especially as I see first hand the benefits to the children. They are excited about the new materials and they always seem eager to visit the library. In a nutshell, they are READING! Before this was not the case. With their continued support, I know the children at the Vieux-Fort Infant School will improve in their literacy skills. Thanks so much Hands Across the Sea, without you these children would not have ready access to great reading materials!
