Now it’s your turn to help Caribbean children and maybe even win an amazing Horizon yacht charter out of Grenada for your friends and family. We’re proud to continue our work with the American Sailing Association and Hands Across The Sea with this amazing initiative that just keeps on getting better and better.
Now in its 11th year, they provide brand new books for Caribbean children and create lending libraries at their schools. This helps enormously to raise the literacy levels of underprivileged children throughout the Caribbean islands.
When you make your donation to the ASA / Hands Across the Sea Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes, you are entered to win a one-week, four-person bareboat charter in Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Tobago Cays. So please, please donate for this amazing venture and we hope to meet you sailing the beautiful Caribbean very soon!
Hands Across the Sea employs a network of retired educators, called Hands Literacy Links, to mentor and coach school staff to bolster the sustainability of lending libraries at 380 primary schools (Grades K-6) and high schools across the region. Hands literacy support includes the Hands Student Librarian Program, the Hands Remedial Reading Toolkit (reading rescue for struggling high school students), and support materials such as the Teachers Resource Guide to the Library (Grades K-3), the Hands Library Manual, and the Hands Student Librarian Handbook.
