SPECIAL REPORTS

  • RMG – Salesians in the field for the Global Compact on Education

    (ANS – Rome) – As Salesians, we join the call and invitation of Pope Francis for a Global Compact on Education: as a mission, as a choice, as a future. To say "Salesians" is to say Education and Evangelization of young people. Once with Don Bosco, today like Don Bosco, renewed in the forms, in the processes, in the methodologies we need to make them live the opportunity of a new humanity. The best we can offer the new generations is education, thinking about the future of humanity with and for the young.
