Caravan to Class’ work in Female Adult Literacy was showcased at Dining for Women National Conference at the US Institute of Peace.

MAY 9, 2018

Caravan to Class’ Founder, Barry Hoffner, was one of only a handful of men to attend Dining for Women’s National Conference at the US Institute of Peace in Washington D.C. May 4th and 5th, which was attended by more than 300 Dining for Women members nationally. Dining for Women partners with a select number of small organizations with a focus on women’s rights, as well as large humanitarian organizations like Unicef and the Peace Corps. The conference saw an impressive list of speakers both working in the field and in the political sphere fighting for women’s rights globally.
