The Wider Image: Forced to beg, Senegal's "talibes" face exploitation and abuse
Moussa, a Koran student, called a talibe, from Futa, stands inside a classroom of Maison de la Gare, an organisation that helps talibe street children reintegrate into society, in Saint-Louis, Senegal, February 7, 2019. "My parents know that I'm begging to take money back to the marabout (Koranic teacher) but they don't do anything. I don't like to beg but I'm forced. I'm being beaten up if I don't take money back," Moussa said. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "TALIBE BENSEMRA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
