Caravan to Class is a registered 501c3 which seeks to bring education to villages in Mali and across Africa, one village at a time, by engaging diverse communities of supporters.

Our Vision

We imagine a world where no matter where a child lives, the fundamental right of education is assured. Caravan to Class aims to inspire you, our supporters, to work with us to reverse the injustice of illiteracy in some of Africa’s most far away places. In doing so, we want to connect you, our supporters, with the villages where we operate, and act to bridge the great divide between our two very different worlds, each with its own strengths and challenges.

Though we are a young organization and a small team, we are confident in the ability of our programs, charitable model, and the people we work and partner with, to serve our cause: the eradication of illiteracy in Sub-Saharan Africa.

We hope you will join us in advancing the cause of literacy!
