The Difference You Have Made
Celebrate! 107,194 New Amazing Books and Literacy Resources to 23,254 Children


This is the difference you have made in 2017: Cycle through the slideshow and you'll see child literacy blossoming in the Caribbean in a thousand ways. Thanks to your caring support, we've been able to empower school principals, teachers, and U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers with great new books, literacy tools, and methodology for the children in their care. For the 2017-2018 Hands Wish Lists shipment we shipped 107,194 amazing new books and literacy resources from 18 of the world's leading education and children's book publishers. Right now our crew of on-island Hands Literacy Links are at work monitoring, mentoring, and helping to create and rejuvenate sustainable lending libraries in schools—often where no library existed before. Plus, thanks to your generous support, our Student Librarian Program and our Remedial Reading Program are taking off! From all of us at Hands, we thank you and wish you peace and joy this holiday season.
