Challenging Fatalism

Most Talibe boys lack the opportunity to attend school. Through Doulos’ literacy classes, occupational training, and school sponsorship program, the boys develop the necessary skills for obtaining meaningful employment in the future.

Education is a critical element in confronting the fatalistic attitudes which teach that we have no control over our lives and circumstances and must accept the fate which has been dealt to us. In Doulos’ work with Talibe boys, Qur’anic teachers, and local communities, we have actively sought to challenge this worldview and replace it with a more positive and active view of self, and our place in our community and wider society.
