Hands across the Sea Tom & Harriet are long time cruisers who have "adopted" schools in the Caribbean. We helped paint book shelves that Tom had built for a school in Dominica. See pictures. We returned the following year and with our daughter Corinne and partner Eric - both teachers- we helped build reading rooms. Dominica January 2010. Look at their site.
