The Wider Image: Forced to beg, Senegal's "talibes" face exploitation and abuse
Zeus, 45, a painter and activist, who teaches Koran students, called talibes, to paint, sits in front of his painting in Saint-Louis, Senegal, February 7, 2019. "The marabouts (Koranic teachers) of the daaras (Koranic school) demand money from the boys every night," Zeus said. "Since I made this painting, a marabout here, in Saint-Louis, threatened me because I somehow denounced their practice." The writing on the painting reads: "Why are there no talibe girls?"
