(ANS - Seville) - "Today's youth live with technology spontaneously and naturally. They were born and brought up in that environment. They are called 'experts in technology' and it's no wonder.” So it says in the book “Youth in a Digital Culture”. The Salesian Schools in Spain have facts to prove that their young people are committed to promoting innovation in education and service to humanity.

(ANS - Piura) - In the midst of a disaster of this magnitude, between death and desolation, there are also stories of solidarity and help given to people who have lost everything. The numbers affected by the disaster are rising every day. Today we can say that there are more deaths, more people missing, more homes destroyed, more isolated villages ... But today is the time to act on behalf of the poor who have lost everything. "Those were the fruit of 20 years’ work," says a poor man. "I lost the money I had saved for an eye operation” says an 80-year-old lady. “Now I have nothing. The flood has taken everything." For all these people the Don Bosco Foundation continues to work and manage relief efforts, with the motto: "Give me a hand, Peru."

  • Egypt - Higher Education in the Salesian School in Cairo

    (ANS - Cairo) - Over the years the Don Bosco Industrial Technical Institute in Cairo has been a centre of excellence. Every year it trains many young people as industrial experts, prepares them to enter the world of work and in this way helps Egypt to a high level of industrial development. In recent months, a number of innovative projects have been developed in the field of renewable energy. We listen to what the people involved have to say:


  • A rich man who helped Lazarus

    In his letter for Lent this year, Pope Francis invites us to be generous with the needy, stressing that this generosity should lead us not to give what is left over but to give of our very own. In this regard, the example set by Chuck Feeney, an 85-year-old man who donated all his possessions to charity, well represents the phrase: "He did not give the crumbs. He gave the whole bread."



  • Sudan - "They all appreciate the services offered by Don Bosco to the young"

    (ANS - El Obeid) - In recent months the Salesian house in El Obedi received some important visits: a few days ago there was that of the Queen of Qatar, Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser. In December 2016 several members of the State Legislative Assembly visited it, and before that, in November 2016, officials of UNICEF and the Ministry of Education paid a visit. Why so much interest? The fact that in a world that is far from simple, the Don Bosco Centre is changing the lives of thousands of young people by means of one of the typical elements of Salesian education: Vocational Training.
