(ANS - Rome) - Don Bosco is considered a missionary saint without ever having been on a mission. It was his great aspiration and he received many offers of destinations to which the first Salesians were sent, but it was only when he saw it clearly in his dream that he succeeded in achieving this goal in life, through the first missionary expeditions. From that moment on, the missionary spirit of the Salesians goes hand in hand with their charism: an evangelizing passion through education and integral promotion of young people, especially the most disadvantaged.
(ANS - New Rochelle) - Salesians throughout the world promote numerous projects aimed at promoting gender equality and the social emancipation of women. Cambodia, El Salvador, Mali and Sierra Leone are just some of the realities where so many women receive opportunities for their future.
