Young men work in a tailor’s shop in the ‘Centre Commercial de Touba’ on Bou-Bous, the traditional Senegalese robes. Before the Grand Magal, which takes place in October, the demand for the clothes is particularly high. The textile workers in this room all belong to the same Dahira. On the walls there are posters of the marabouts to which the workers commit themselves. Most of the children in Senegal are not trained in a state but in a Koranic school. Many do not learn to read or write there, neither mathematics nor the official French language. Some of them may later find work in the businesses of wealthy members of the Dahiras.
