Burkina Faso Fulani Baptism African Women
In Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, a Fulani child sleeps on a woman's lap.  A 1,000 cfa note lies on the child, a gift of a guest at the child's baptism.  While Muslim children in Burkina Faso are normally baptized at age 7 days, this child's family didn't have the money for the celebration until 3 months later.
