Forced to beg, Senegal's "talibes" face exploitation and abuse
Families across Senegal have long enrolled their children in schools called 'daaras' to learn Islamic scripture and build character but many parents, often far away back home, are unaware of the risks some children face in the process.

Saint Louis, Senegal
Mamadou Gueye (2nd R), a street child educator, and Issa Kouyate (L), founder of Maison de la Gare, an organisation that helps talibe street children reintegrate into society, escort an eight-year-old talibe boy and a teenager (green shorts) during a night patrol in Saint-Louis, Senegal, February 9, 2019. Gueye and Kouyate rescued the boy when the teenager was raping him at a bus station. The boy said he was alone on the streets and trying to find a place to sleep when the teenager forced him to go with him. "I ran away from the daara (Koranic school) for not having managed to collect enough money to go back for the night," he said. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "TALIBE BENSEMRA" FOR THIS STORY.
