Note to Dining for Women Members

March 1, 2017

Dear Dining for Women Members,

Dining for Women logo

Having just returned from my annual trip to Timbuktu to see the Caravan to Class programs in action, including our DFW-funded Female Adult Literacy programs, I wanted to include you in the distribution of this trip note.

I personally observed the Female Adult Literacy program in action in three villages where Caravan to Class works near Timbuktu; the villages of Kabara Sans Fil, Kakondji, and Bantam. I can tell you personally that I was very impressed with both the attendance and the interaction of the women. Many of them said that it is the most enjoyable thing that they have ever participated in: spending 4 hours per day with other women in the village where they can forget about the challenges of daily life and just learn the basics of reading, writing and understanding their local language, whether Tamashek or Songhai.

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.
