Cataloging Nigeria's Abandoned Children
Pictures speak louder than words. Popular activist Jamil Mabai has embarked on a project to take beautiful pictures of Almajiri children in Nigeria's north. As many as 10 million northern children are out of school, abandoned to a beggars life as Almajiri.
Jamilu uses his photography to show there can be beauty in everything, even in pain and suffering.
His pictures bring the plight of Nigeria's Almajiri to a wider global audience.
Jamil Mabai was recently locked up for criticizing the Katsina government's policies. He tweets from @jaymb000.
