The Wider Image: Forced to beg, Senegal's "talibes" face exploitation and abuse
Abdel Rahman, 20, a former Koran student, called a talibe, who became a karate coach at Maison de la Gare, an organisation that helps talibe street children reintegrate into society, trains talibe children in the courtyard of the organisation, in Saint-Louis, Senegal, February 7, 2019. "I have myself experienced the pain of being sent to the streets to beg. Karate helped me a lot, now it's my turn to help others get out," Rahman said. "I'm one of them and they trust me. I urge them to participate in a local championship. It's one of the ways to reintegrate into society." REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "TALIBE BENSEMRA" FOR THIS STORY.
