Hands Across the Sea
is a top-rated nonprofit
The reach and positive impact of Hands Across the Sea, founded in 2007 to raise child literacy levels and assist schools in Eastern Caribbean communities, is growing fast. With our Hands Wish Lists we take requests from school principals, teachers, literacy coordinators, local NGOs, and U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers affiliated with Caribbean schools for books and teaching resources their students, from pre-school to high school, need to improve learning and literacy. And then we do our best to get it to them.
