The Beninese government does not pay for religious education, making the marabouts rely on donations. Sometimes the community provides these funds, yet more often the voodoo adept, the Koranic students, have to gather daily contributions for tuition and board. Although laws against forced begging exist, attempts to regulate the Daaras, the local religions, have so far been unsuccessful. As no minimal set of either educational or hygienic standards is in place, the situation of the priet fâ depends entirely on the marabout’s goodwill.
