"Hands Across the Sea has shown passion and devotion to the staff and students of our school, and all of St. Lucia. They not only donated books and school supplies but have changed the educational landscape of our students and provided them with richer and deeper learning experiences."
Sandra Roberts, HOD English, Isaiah Thomas Secondary School
"We came from literally nothing to a completely new Literacy Centre and a refurbished library with attractive, exciting, updated, and meaningful fiction and non-fiction books. Our reading population has improved significantly and our students simply love to visit both the library and Literacy Centre."

Lorette Coy-James, Principal, Stephanie Browne Primary School
"Since Hands visited us five years ago our school has seen a great improvement in our library resource and thus a significant improvement in student reading levels. The interest shown by Hands Across the Sea in our children's development is greatly appreciated by our parents, staff, and students."
Kim Parris, Teacher-Librarian, Anglican High School
"Hands Across the Sea has played a major role in the reopening of our school library. They asked us to transform a storeroom space with shelves, and then the new books arrived. On a daily basis our students, filled with excitement, are borrowing and reading books. The gift from Hands is enhancing reading and literacy among our students."
Cindy Reynolds, Volunteer Librarian, Kids Unlimited School
"Hands Across the Sea has done a great job helping to stock our school library with new, exciting titles. The fact that they send the books that we actually ask for is pretty amazing, and has made a massive difference to our library and our school."
