(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.

On many occasions Pope Francis has spoken of the "peripheries of the world", or "existential peripheries," a polyvalent expression full of meanings which indicate a judgment on the contemporary Church and, at the same time, a perspective, a direction for progress. Not only do the Bolivian Salesians have various works in the suburbs, but the same Salesian University has now come to the periphery in search of young people with specific needs.

  • 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.
