On 26 May, Advocacy planning meeting discussions were led by the SDB UN representative, Don Bosco International (DBI), Don Bosco Green Alliance (DBGA), and IIMA Human Rights Office of the Salesian Sisters FMA. Participants shared their experiences and planned cooperation between official representation at the United Nations, European Union, African Union, and other international forums. Advocacy online workshops for Salesian PDOs were planned for 9 and 10 June 2020.
During the DBN General Assembly, Development Education and Development Cooperation Working Group meetings, 25 representatives of Don Bosco organizations from Europe, USA, India and Africa discussed COVID-19's impact on programs, projects and operations, an effective coordinated response to this pandemic, and plans for the new post-emergency situation.
Working together, the DBN organization continues to provide effective support to Don Bosco Mission Worldwide in this difficult time for all.
