Schools Participation

Teach your students about social justice

Our aim is for Caravan to Class to be a bridge to children of far away and forgotten places who lack proper education. The children in villages like Tedeini, outside of Timbuktu, are happy and engaged children. Their villages are poor and lacking any government support. They either do not have schools or lack basic essentials like certified teachers to provide basic education. By engaging schools in more priviledged countries like ours, youth can both learn about the interesting places where Caravan to Class operates, and become aware of important social justice issues.

The students from your school will come to learn that, while children in many Africa villages lack basic essentials like school, however, they still have dignity and dreams just like children from more prosperous countries. Caravan to Class would like to provide this connection. We are fortunate to have had the support and engagement of a few schools in Northern California and would like to use these positive experiences as a blueprint for future interactions with other schools.

Marin County's Bandeis Hillel Day School used a Read-a-Thon to help Caravan to Class. LEARN HOW
