Review for Hands Across the Sea, Inc., Boston, MA, USA
My name is Vernella Henderson Dumas and I am a teacher at the Christian Union Primary School and I must say, Hands Across The Sea has been nothing short of a blessing for our institution. Being a private school, we are often overlooked by the higher ups in relation to our school needs. After losing our library during Hurricane Maria, we were beginning to accept that we would never be able to supply this need for our students. Hands across the sea came in like angels and provided us with a plethora of reading material! We, as staff, enjoyed sitting together to stamp and tag the books in great expectancy of the students excitement. Giselle, their representative, was kind, helpful and pleasant and even guided us through the process of book prep and how to run our library with student librarians successfully. Such dedication. We have trained our student librarians who run the day to day activities in the library. The students are beyond overjoyed and can't get enough of the books! To add icing to this wonderful cake, we were fortunate to receive the Hands Across the Sea School Library Award for being the best student run library on our Island, Dominica! Thank you Hands Across The Sea! We are thankful for all you do for us and look forward to continuing this wonderful relationship onwards!
