(ANS - Accra) - Accra, the capital of Ghana, located on the Gulf of Guinea, is a metropolis of 5 million inhabitants. In its metropolitan area, at Ashaiman, the Salesians animate two houses. The presence of the spiritual Sons of Don Bosco in the country then develops through two other communities, namely in the locality of Sunyani, about 400 km north-west of the capital. In both cities, as well as in the new center of Tatale, the Salesians work at the service of children and young people, especially the most in need.

(ANS - Matola) - Francisco is 14 years old and has been asking for alms since he was seven years old, that is since his mother died. Dércio is also 14, is his best friend and is part of the same group of minors that stand at the EN4 traffic light – the "Estrada Nacional 4" which connects Mozambique and South Africa – where they ask for money. There is a sort of brotherhood at the Matola toll booth, where about a dozen children and teenagers approach drivers each and every day.

(ANS – Mumbai) – The Mission of the Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) is to provide hope for those with little hope of a future, and the Salesian-run organisation - working in communities in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh - has successfully lived up to its mission, arming the poor - like Sharmila Thale - with tools and skills to make a livelihood.

(ANS - Salta) - When the afternoon is about to end, after the noise of the backpacks being dragged has stopped resounding on the sidewalks and the parish has said farewell to the faithful of the 7.30 pm Mass, a few blocks from the center of Salta, in calle Caseros 1250, the lab students begin to arrive. They come from different neighborhoods, most poor and some have not finished school, but they are there because they want to do something with their young lives.

(ANS - Port-au-Prince) - The Salesian service for Haitian children and youth in difficulty - "LAKAY Don Bosco" - was established in 1988 in Port-au-Prince on the initiative of the Italian Salesian Fr Attilio Stra. The project aimed and still aims to answer to the cry that comes from the hearts of many children, adolescents and young people who are rejected and marginalized and live in situations of neglect, negligence or serious social risk.

(ANS - Campo Grande) - The latest UNICEF and World Bank data state that "385 million children live in extreme poverty."; "In the world it is estimated that around 145 million children live on the streets."; "About 60 million children in Latin America are victims of all kinds of abuse." Frightening figures. The Salesians in many parts of the world work like "ants" in favor of children and young people: not very visible, but decisive. "Casa Don Bosco" in the district of Taquaral Bosque, in Campo Grande, has been serving the most disadvantaged for 29 years.
