Senegal – Mystic leader

A group of Talibés posing for a picture in the backyard of their school. The Talibés, as the boys and girls who attend a school for Koran are called, often suffer under the miserable conditions and the brutal beatings in those schools. Many children are sent to the Koran schools by impoverished parents, where they are often brutally exploited by the Marabouts who often send them to the streets to beg for money, allegedly to buy food and provide shelter for these poor kids.
