About Saint John Bosco
St. John Bosco (Don Bosco), the marvel of the 19th century, is remembered as a man who dedicated his life to the service of abandoned and marginalized young people. He challenged the way young people were treated in the desperate poverty that existed at that time in the city of Turin, Italy. He was driven by first-hand experience of the effects of dreadful poverty and hunger on the young people he came across, he was determined to change their condition. Others were inspired to follow him in responding to the needs of the young. He founded a Religious Order in the Catholic Church, called the Salesians.
Works of Salesians
Today, the Salesians of Don Bosco take quality education to the margins-rural education, tribal communities and other disadvantage groups - while remaining committed to engaging with all sections of society. Don Bosco Educational Institutions foster freedom of thought, impartiality across communities and classes, foster inclusiveness, discipline, and inculcate values while inspiring a compassionate commitment to develop honest, responsible citizens ready to serve society. The Salesians continue this ministry for young people in academics, technical schools, parishes and animation/ youth centres for the poorest young.
