Pictures of the summer activities of the Salesian oratories and youth centers from around the globe

Aleppo, Syria - July 7, 2017 - Offering children and teenagers a trip or a walk outside the traditional courtyards of a Salesian house is always a source of joy, but it is especially so in Aleppo. On Wednesday, July 5, about 900 people from the city's Salesian oratory visited the "Citadel of Aleppo", the most famous urban monument, located on a hill in the historic center.

(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 - Rijeka) - The Salesians have been in Croatia since 1914. The country has experienced great changes in this period, with the dictatorship, the war of independence, and so on. The testimony of Fr Goran Antunovic, 32 year-old Salesian working in Rijeka (Fiume), provides an overview of the current situation.

(ANS - Dakar) – International volunteering enriches the lives of those who experience it.  But what is it, in fact? "In Africa I discovered the stimulating world of Development Cooperation and I acquired skills in planning.” So says Leonard, an economics student, who spent two months working with the young people who attend the Salesian Centre in Dakar, Senegal. This is his testimony.
