Hands Across the Sea's reach and delivery of quality books throughout the Eastern Caribbean islands makes it the most efficient charity of this type. 51,470 books and 95 boxes of resources to 100 schools, libraries, reading programs, and youth centers (approximately 17,000 students in 7 countries) were donated in 2011/2012. This supply of literacy materials makes a huge difference to Caribbean children with little or no access to books (beyond school texts). Living in Grenada, I can see the impact that this organization has made as expressed by librarians, reading groups and schools and can only thank the founders of Hands Across the Sea over and over again. Great work for a great cause that is often overlooked because it is not percieved as 'desperate' or urgent!
