As talibés live in their schoolhouses (daaras), they often sleep piled on top of one another with one adult per large group of children. In Senegal Malaria is a common disease that leads to 14% of child deaths. Voices of Talibés is raising money to purchase and donate mosquito nets to several different daaras in Dakar, Senegal. We believe this will help combat the neglect of these children’s wellbeing.

We ask that you donate anything you can or share this flyer. Thank you.

Collection and distribution dates

Donations will be collected from March 1, 2014 through April 20, 2014.

Distribution will take place April 24, 2014 in Dakar, Senegal.

About our Foundation

Voices of Talibés Foundation Inc. is a nonprofit organization with a mission to spread awareness about the issue of child trafficking in Senegal, improve the living conditions of neglected children, advocate for the rights of street children in Senegal, and establish shelters where children who have become victims in the Talibe system may seek refuge, safety, and proper education in agreeable living conditions. It was created to target the unintended effects of the Talibe system- illiteracy, child abuse, and neglect. They do this through a three-pronged approach that includes advocacy for these children’s rights, caring for them, and educating the public on their living conditions and daily hardships.
