We inaugurated the school that Caravan to Class built in the village of Nanga in February 2019. Nanga was an interesting and different choice for our 2018-19 school construction project. The actual village itself is small, but it is in an area where there are many fishing communities (Bozo) close by, in addition to the nomadic cattle-herders (Peul). Thus, the school will draw children from beyond the actual village. Initially, when we were in the planning stages of the school, after a number of meetings, we made the decision that this school would give many children access to school who would otherwise not have the opportunity. The Nanga school is a 3-room cement school. We also built latrines, both for boys and girls, at the site as a follow-up in 2019.

The project was finished in early 2019, and will educate roughly 110 children ages 6–12 years.
