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

Rating: 5 stars  

School libraries in St. Kitts-Nevis have been at the implementation stage for more than five years. Undoubtedly, one of the challenges faced by these schools, including Saddlers Secondary School, is that of lack of funding which is needed for the acquisition of information resources. Saddlers Secondary School was officially opened in May of this year with a collection of less than 800 to serve approximately 205 students. Shortly after, I learnt of Hands Across the Sea when the school was invited by the organization to apply for the U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Grant (which was secured in the form of over 400 books). Since then, through the Hands Across the Sea Website, I have familiarized myself with the goals of and the invaluable work done by this organization. Indeed, I am impressed! Accordingly, I am thrilled to add to the commendation of this non-profit organization for its outstanding work in helping to ultimately raise not only the literacy levels of our students at the Saddlers Secondary School, but also that of a significant number of students and adults throughout the Caribbean. Well done Harriet and Tom Linskey and the entire Hands Across the Sea team! (Librarian, Saddlers Secondary School)
