Target demographics: Children from low-income families in Mali

Direct beneficiaries per year: 1,000 students ages 6 - 12 years to achieve the dream of literacy

Geographic areas served: Timbuktu, Mali

Programs: Our programs provide teaching, books, school uniforms, food, and infrastructure such as classrooms, libraries, canteens and latrines

Mission:
We imagine a world where no matter where a child lives, the fundamental right of education is assured. Caravan to Class aims to inspire 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 our supporters with the villages in which we operate, and act to bridge the great divide between our two very different worlds, each with its own strengths and challenges.
Results:
Since 2010 Caravan to Class has built 8 schools in villages around Timbuktu, Mali, one of the world's most underserved and illiterate areas. We also pay teachers' salaries and provide books, school supplies, and basic nutrition. In partnering with the UN World Food Program and the Timbuktu Ministry of Education, we ensure the prioritization of learning in the schools that we support.

Since 2010, Caravan to Class has accomplished the following:

1. Built 8 schools
2. Pay 25 teachers' salaries per year
3. Educate over 1,000 students per year
4. Provide over 150,000 meals per year
