(ANS - Antananarivo) - Although for many it is best known as a tourist destination, Madagascar is also one of the poorest countries in the world, where half the population is forced to survive on less than 100 Ariary (about 3 cents) per day, and three-quarters of the Malagasy live in slums. In such a situation, the opportunity that the Salesians offers young Malagasy in the Notre Dame de Clairvaux Centre is even more valuable.

(ANS - Lubumbashi) - Poverty and family breakdown are the main reasons for the large number of children and young people who crowd the streets of Lubumbashi, the third largest city of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

(ANS - Linguere) - Ahmed Ndiaye is a young man of 20, a native of Linguere in Senegal.  Linguere is a city located 305 km north east of Dakar. In the local language it is called ‘Wolof’, a name which means "prince." But there is nothing of the prince about Ahmed, and his city does not look like a palace. It is a semi-desert town, where the only true sovereign is poverty.

The founder of the Salesians is still changing the lives of many children in the North of Tenerife: The Don Bosco Foundation Project. based at the San Isidro Salesian Institute in de La Orotava, has for many years been carrying out an intense work with children and young people, offering them a better present and a better future.

(ANS - Mandalay) - The Salesian centre for street boys in Mandalay, the second most important city of Myanmar, now has a new dormitory and a new refectory, thanks to the generous donation of a wealthy retired US businessman of Jewish origin, and his wife. Fr Peter Myo Khin, SDB, who runs this Salesian centre, and all the young people in need who reside there are very grateful for this beautiful gesture.

  • WHY WE HAVE LIFE IN ABUNDANCE

    My thought goes to the Salesian presences around the world because our dream is that they might be true dispensers of life to so many young people, and a life in abundance, an authentic, true life which gives them dignity and helps them also experience the great gift that God is in their lives.
