Our Partners in Making a Difference

Hands Across the Sea has partnered with organizations that have similar causes and those interested in helping us achieve our goals.

Every Child Counts, Every Student Matters

Every Child Counts The Every Child Counts, Every Student Matters foundation is focused on raising funds to enable more children to attend school in Haiti. The foundation starts with the simple premise if we begin with one child in need and offer assistance, we have hopefully made a difference in the life of that child. It is in this spirit that the foundation wishes to play a part, however humble in its beginning or however modest in its present efforts, to share our resources, and to let someone know we care and we are trying to help.

Hands Across the Sea has been partnered with Every Child Counts, Every Student Matters for many years.
