This social impact documentary raises crucial awareness about the plight of 50.000 quranic students, Talibes (young boys between 4-15 years old) who are forced to beg by their teachers and suffer exploitation in conditions akin to slavery.
In collaboration with local non-profit La Maison de la Gare, the documentary is made available for organisations and advocacy groups working to end the abuse of Talibes children.
