The Salesians of Don Bosco mission is the educational and broad human development of poor, disadvantaged, abandoned, orphaned children and youth, to earn a decent living for themselves and their families and become responsible, constructive citizens of their communities and the nation.
Open to the cultural values of the lands in which we work, we try to understand them and become part of them so as to incarnate in them the message of the Gospel. The needs of the young, of ordinary people, the desire to work with the Church and in her name, inspire and shape our concrete pastoral activity so as to bring about a more just world and one of greater fellowship in Christ. Founded by St. John Bosco, an Italian saint-educator of the nineteenth century, we are today in 132 different nations.
This official website of our international community will give you a glimpse into what we do, how we do it and why we believe that what we do is worth living and dying for. Journeying with the young: be a part of the adventure!
