Boys from a group of 12 Gambian boys who fled their Daara (religious school) and were found at the central bus station trying to get home, sit on a bed at the Maison de la Gare, a charity that seeks to rehabilitate ex-Talibe (children who live and study the Koran at a Daara). Staff from the Maison de la Gare brought the children to the charity's premises to open a report and find out what their 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.
