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.
