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

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with Hands Across the Sea has been exceptional. My husband and I are sailors. I was able to connect with Harriet Linskey and Amanda Sherlip before we made the long trip to the Caribbean. They were organized and efficient, sharing important information that I would need to make the most of my time with Hands Across the Sea. I was able to meet and work with the experienced staff in Antigua, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Furthermore, I was able to observe firsthand the interactive environment that Hands Across the Sea provides in schools. Libraries were clean, vibrant, and full of books. Children and teachers alike were enthusiastic about participating in all aspects of the program. Sadly, we visited during the COVID pandemic, but this did not stop Hands Across the Sea from staying involved and continuing to reach out to children in safe ways. Mobile libraries were put in place, as well as outdoor reading spaces. Hands Across the Sea remained diligent and motivated through it all and I was so happy to be a part of it!
