Some 50,000 children attending urban residential Quranic schools, or daaras, in Senegal are subjected to conditions akin to slavery and forced to endure often extreme forms of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Moved from their villages in Senegal and Guinea-Bissau, the children, known as talibés, are forced to beg for up to 10 hours a day.
