Hands Across the Sea, Inc.
April 27, 2011

Hands Across the Sea is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhance literacy in the Caribbean. Due to the economic situation, many of our primary schools lack the necessary resources needed for children to succeed. Hands Across saw the need and decided to be proactive. They have provided lots of reading material and school resources to a number of primary and secondary schools in Dominica. They have also assisted in repairing libraries, building bookcases and furniture for secondary, primary and pre-schools. Some of the things I love most about this organization are 1. They visit the schools regularly and actually do the building, repairing and monitoring of material given to schools, to ensure they are put to good use. 2. They recruit other volunteers from the USA who are visiting the island to come in to give assistance. 3. The founders are very humble and passionate about what they do. They have sacrificed their time and talents to help.

I have worked personally with the donors and also received educational material from them which I have used with teachers during workshops. I have learnt a lot from the sacrifices made by them. I have also had first hand experiences of the high quality of work they do voluntarily. This is the best NGO I have personally come across.
Thank you Hands Across the Sea. I pray that many persons will see the great work you are doing and support you. Our children need you. Thank you and God bless you Tom and Harriet and all those who will continue to give to your organization. I pray that you will see the fruits of your labor.
