Causes of Poverty

  • Almost half the world — over 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day.
  • The GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of the 41 Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (567 million people) is less than the wealth of the world’s 7 richest people combined.
  • Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names.
  • Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year on weapons was needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet it didn’t happen.
  • 1 billion children live in poverty (1 in 2 children in the world). 640 million live without adequate shelter, 400 million have no access to safe water, 270 million have no access to health services. 10.6 million died in 2003 before they reached the age of 5 (or roughly 29,000 children per day).

Talibé…… :(

The Talibé are children that are sent by there families to Marabout in order for them to get the Koranic education they need.One of the reasons for that are the deep rooted traditions between Marabous and families in Senegal, in Senegal Marabous are highly regarded and respect in the community. 

The Marabout teaches the children how to read and write in Arabic in order for them to memorize the Koran. The Marabout also teaches them to live by two principal of Islam which are Humility and Endurance, through this learning process they are exposed to harsh living conditions and often have to beg on the streets. It is easy to recognize them in the streets of Dakar, they usually have red can to collect coins. 

But the truth is far from that, they are barely literate and spend most of their time under the blazing, with open palms begging tourist or Resident. The conditions in which they live are complicated there body is constantly infected by numerous diseases.
