Hands Across the Sea is overseen in Canada by the Hands Across The Sea Association, a non-profit board of directors with members from across Canada and the United States. The board members function in a strictly volunteer capacity and we strive to keep our overhead costs low so that more of your generous donations can go to running our orphanage, school and community programs. Our volunteer board members are from many different professions and provinces. They all share a love for Haiti and a desire to help change the lives of children and families in the Deschapelles Valley.
