Caravan to Class is an all-volunteer registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization that invests in education and literacy in one of the world’s most illiterate regions. We believe that the goal of universal literacy is an important one. It is our mission to make this a reality in every village we operate in. We take our 501(c)(3) status very seriously. It is also important to us that our donors know that every donation made—whether $10 or $10,000—goes directly to providing an education for the children we serve. All of our administrative expenses, whether website development, tax & legal assistance, graphic design work, or travel, are either in-kind donations or paid for by us outside of Caravan to Class.

Caravan to Class is pleased to release our latest Annual Impact Report. The report covers our various school projects in the Timbuktu region of Mali, detailing needs, costs and how Caravan to Class is able to impact the education needs of the many wonderful children we serve in the Southern Sahara Desert.

Caravan to Class is passionate about literacy. We believe strongly that it is a universal right that should be open and free to all children. The need for education in the Southern Sahara desert is great; and it is our mission to invest in literacy in the remote villages of this region. Please join our cause!
