Our Work at a Glance

We imagine a world where the fundamental right of education is assured for every child everywhere.

Caravan to Class began its journey to bring literacy to villages around the fabled Timbuktu in 2010. Since building our first school in the region—with the support and generosity of our donors and friends—Caravan to Class has become an important force for the revitalization of the region. Guided by the simple principle that "going to school" is a fundamental human right, we continue our commitment to serving the region long-term.

Since we built our first school in 2010, with the support and generosity of so many who are passionate about literacy and Timbuktu, Caravan to Class has become one of the region's most important forces for the revitalization of the area. In 2017, Caravan to Class will finish our 11th school construction project, bringing French-language literacy to more than 1,500 children ages 6-12 years. We are guided by the simple principle that "going to school" is a fundamental human right of all children. With so many villages still without schools I'm the Timbuktu region, we are committed to serving the area long-term so that every child can enjoy the hope that comes with education.
