American Sailing Association & Hands Across The Sea
Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes
By putting brand new, amazing, life-changing books into the hands of Caribbean children and creating/rejuvenating lending libraries at their schools, Hands Across the Sea is helping to raise the literacy levels—and the hopes for a better life—of underprivileged children on the islands of Antigua, Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Now in its twelfth year serving Caribbean children, 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.
When you donate to the ASA/Hands Across the Sea Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes, you are entered to win a one-week, four-person bareboat charter in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and the Tobago Cays courtesy of ASA Affiliate Horizon Yacht Charters. Or you could win a luxurious seven-night stay for four (two rooms) at The Verandah Resort & Spa in Antigua or at the St. James’s Club, Morgan Bay, St. Lucia, courtesy of Elite Island Resorts.
Thank you for supporting literacy for Caribbean children. Like you, we believe that every child should grow up reading!
