(ANS – Kolkata) – When the night comes, street children become particularly vulnerable. Every evening, Don Bosco Ashalayam in Kolkata opens its doors to all children in need of a safe place to sleep. Children and young people come stay the night but have the freedom to leave if they wish. However, the Night Shelters are close to the homes, and their positive experience at the Night Shelter means that some vulnerable young people elect to move to this more stable environment. They can eat healthy meals, wash, receive medical care and enjoy a safe place to study and socialize with friends.

(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.

(ANS - Freetown) - Aminata and Augusta did not know each other. Augusta worked as a prostitute to be able to eat, but now has her own catering business and strives to make it clear to other girls that they should not take that road. Aminata, on the other hand, believes she has to be a prostitute because her grandmother and her mother both were. Augusta is grateful to Don Bosco for the new life that has been given to her, while Aminata is aware of wanting to get out of that world, and appreciates the Salesians' efforts to persuade her, ... but she still resists.

  • Put yourself in "someone else's shoes"

    While in recent years the global scenario is increasingly characterized by a climate of widespread intolerance, where violence and xenophobia create a culture of division, in everyday life, within the family, with friends, in associations or groups, one the one hand we experience a need to live authentic relationships and on the other the sad truth of fatigue or of failure.
