(ANS – La Paz) – Every year some publishing houses close down due to sales drop. Publishers must fight against many problems, such as: scarce interest for reading, competitiveness of “pirate” books and technological progress. Even though the situation of publishing houses has become more problematic in these last years, yet the Salesian publications “Editorial Don Bosco” (EDB) is carrying out a plan of expansion with the opening of new branches in the main regions of Bolivia.

(ANS – Aleppo) – “The entrance to Aleppo is horrifying, the war damages are visible to all, and bombardments continue every day. The city is divided into quarters controlled by the government and quarters in the hands of rebels (many more than in Damascus); the war is fought every day. Many people fled, and many Christians too. Everything is blocked at work level; till a few months ago the city was entirely surrounded by rebels; there is shortage of water, electricity is available one hour per day …” Thus I wrote in March 2015, during a visit I made on behalf of the Rector Major.

(ANS – Rome) – It is over 150 years that the Salesians of Don Bosco consider minors as the active holders of rights and look in each one of them for the positive potentialities that must bloom through education.  However, all over the world there are millions of Unaccompanied Minor Refugees (UMR), one of the categories that are more at risk of violence, exploitation and violation of their rights. On the occasion of the International Migrants Day, that is celebrated on December 18th, Don Bosco International presents some guidelines so that the Salesian work with these minors may always be qualified and respectful of their specific exigencies.





  • Spain - Don Bosco's Preventive System relives in the film "Wonder"

    (ANS - Madrid) - The film "Wonder", the story of little Auggie Pullman, a child with a facial deformation who faces the challenge of attending a public school for the first time, arrived in cinemas this past December.

    During the film, which deals with the delicate issue of scholastic bullying, there is a clear resemblance to the Preventive System of Don Bosco and these ten sentences of the founder of the Salesians are proof of this.



    Jesus continues to save humanity through our work, our self-giving, our good will. He continues to point out the road to us lest we lose our bearings and our way, and we always assist those who are growing weary, the humblest, the poorest, the least.
