Children at the central bus station. <br />
Staff at the Maison de la Gare, a charity that seeks to rehabilitate ex-Talibe (children who live and study the Koran at a Daara, religious school), have been informed by one of the vendors in the station of a group of 12 Gambian children who have run away from their Daara and are trying to get to back home. The team take the children to the Maison de la Gare to open a report and find out what the children's situation is. <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.
