Caravan to Class

Imagine a world... where no matter where a child
lives, the fundamental right of education is assured.

 

Caravan to Class brings education to the fabled Timbuktu, village by village, reversing the injustice of illiteracy. Find out about:

With your support in helping to educate a child in one of the villages where Caravan to Class operates, we not only bring the gift of literacy directly to a child in a village in Africa, but also break the cycle of illiteracy in the child’s family and bring hope for the future to the village.

Dear Friends & Supporters,

Thank you for your interest in Caravan to Class and the important social justice cause of Literacy for one of the world's most fascinating, yet underserved areas. Being the only NGO both building and supporting schools for the wonderful children of villages around Timbuktu, we see our work as vital to a deserving population. I am writing to tell you a little about my recent trip to the region to see both our now completed Teshaq school rehabilitation project (mostly thanks to support of friends of Ms. Irma Turtle) and our Samdiar school near completion.
