Tivaoune Peul is a town of around 25,000 inhabitants and composed of 20 districts. Darou Rahmane is a very poor district in Tivaoune Peul, where inhabitants have no direct access to either electricity or water. Darou Rahmane has no formal schooling, either primary or secondary. The closest school is located in the neighbouring district, a 35 minute walk from Darou Rahmane. Families who can afford it pay the ride for their children on a donkey-drawn cart. Children from less well-to-do families walk to school 4 times daily in the sandy paths.
