Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc., Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hands Across the Sea ("Hands") delivers tremendous value for children and overall literacy needs in the Caribbean. My family volunteered recently in Dominica for several days and was able to experience first-hand the difference that a caring & focused organization can make. The founders and principals of Hand, Harriet & TL, work tirelessly across a wide range of activities. They do everything from raising $ to buy books & supplies, to delivering the goods (books, school supplies, etc.) to local schools & libraries, to painting classrooms & building bookshelves. Our children, ages 9 & 11, found their experience with Hands to be a true highlight, and they left Dominica with a much greater appreciation of how their efforts can truly make a difference in children & families lives.
