According to Wikipedia, Almajiri is a system of Islamic education practiced in northern Nigeria. Almajiri is gotten from an Arabic word “Al-Muhajirun” which can be translated to mean a person who leaves his home in search of Islamic knowledge.

A report by the National Council for the Welfare of the Destitute (NCWD) approximated the number of current almajiri to 7 million. The system now lacks things like good teachers and basic amenities like proper clothing and shelter. Most of the almajiri do not graduate and are left with the option to do menial jobs.
