Today, June 23, 2017, a decision was reached in the criminal phase of the “Gerini Case.” Although the Public Prosecutor had requested a judgment against the three whom we had accused of fraud,  the Judge issued his decision:  acquittal because there did not exist any substance to the accusation of fraud.  The civil process will continue while we await the decision regarding the ownership of the General House. 

(ANS - Madrid) - Summer camps and tours are among the many activities planned for approximately 18,000 children who take part in the Salesian summer activities organized by 2,500 leaders and 350 Salesians. When school finishes thousands of young people enjoy a well-deserved holiday and the Salesians, particularly through the youth centres, offer educational and recreational activities that respond to one of their specific pedagogical objectives - the educational use of leisure time.

(ANS – Addis Ababa) – Not long ago, they begged, stole and struggled to survive on the streets of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, sniffing glue to dull the daily misery of hunger, exploitation and abuse. Now, thanks to a partnership between the Salesians and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), these young boys have a new lease on life, and are helping to extend that opportunity to other homeless youth.

  • Italy - Hope beyond the waves: Ahmed's story

    (ANS - Turin) - Ahmed comes from Egypt, is a Muslim and he arrived in Italy three years ago. The family did not want to let him go, for fear of losing him in the waves of the Mediterranean but, convinced by a friend, Ahmed decided to leave with the help of his father. Now he has started a new life in Turin, accompanied by the sons of Don Bosco. "The most beautiful and important lesson I learned is to live in peace with people of different countries and religions and the recent visit of the Pope to Cairo is a beautiful demonstration of how we can be brothers," says Ahmed.
