My personal experience with Caravan to Class has been extremely affirming and inspiring. As one of the very few organizations focusing on the issue of illiteracy in the Southern Sahara Desert region, their work is invaluable to the future of these countries. Caravan to Class aims to ensure that the children from some of the poorest villages, that have never been previously exposed to formal schooling, receive the opportunity to obtain an education and become global citizens striving for an educated, equitable, and tolerant nation. As a volunteer for Caravan to Class, witnessing first-hand the kind of impact that Caravan to Class’ work is having not only on these children, but also on their families and communities, is truly amazing. It has been even more motivating to see young children in the US and other countries become involved in Caravan to Class’ cause, driven by the passion to provide their counterparts in the developing world with the same kind of opportunities that they have. This is a momentous year for Caravan to Class, as more and more supporters join our cause to end illiteracy among a population that has long been neglected by the rest of the world. Thanks to our supporters, several new and exciting opportunities have emerged for Caravan to Class. The organization is now taking the next step in achieving its mission and shifting focus from simply getting more children in school to the long-term sustainability of its schools by measuring and documenting the actual impact of these programs. At such an exciting time for Caravan to Class, I am extremely honored to join forces with such a driven and passionate individual like Barry Hoffner in his cause and greatly anticipate what’s to come for this organization and its stakeholders.
