This meeting was a light of hope for the most needy and vulnerable in Central American society. Sought were strategies and projects to give greater attention to young people and to offer them an integral and comprehensive education. To do all this, the leaders of the Salesian Centers of Nicaragua met on Saturday 24 November at the Salesian Institute "San Juan Bosco" in Granada.
On this occasion they sought to give an effective answer to the needs presented by Salesian Vocational Training Centers, to the proposals of the workshops and oratories of the Central American Province, and to deal with them from the pastoral and educational proposal standpoint.
The meeting was an opportunity to learn about the challenging reality that vocational training centers have to face and, above all, to know the reality of the recipients. There is no doubt that to deal with a problem, to resolve a situation it is necessary and indispensable to know the concrete reality, the poverty of the young people with whom the Salesians work. Knowing what the facts are, it will be possible to face the different situations with courage and with a planning mentality and to realize proposals that" will form the young people and help them to get out of poverty.
