A student in a Caravan to Class school writes...

"Caravan to Class helps assure a good education for all students, which guaranties a better future. I love to read… to read a book or a letter to my parents, who can't read… or simply to read information from some place far away."
~ Fadimata Walet, 6th grade, Tedeini school
