Street Children in Senegal
By John M. Balouziyeh (GYAN France, 2006)
Discover the heart-wrenching story of these children, abandoned, left to marabouts (Islamic teachers) who have exploited them in the name of religion for too long. Where local traditions clash with universal human rights, these children are left in the middle of a struggle to reclaim the human dignity that is properly theirs.
“There is not much literature or information available on street children and so I was very excited to find this publication; though very short. It is most definitely enlightening, with useful information and wonderful photos.” – Amazon Vine Review
