Early in the morning Talibe (children who live and study the Koran at a Daara, religious school) leave the schools and pour out on the streets to beg for money and search for food. 	<br />
Their Marabouts (teachers) demand they raise a certain amount of money each day, which varies depending on the age of the children. They demand the money each day, and if the correct sum isn't brought back the children are punished. <br />
Talibe often have issues that stem from being separated from their parents at a young age and the abuse they endure at the Daaras where they are expected to beg to raise money for the Daara's marabout and to get food to fed themselves.
