(ANS - Camagüey) - There are no religious colleges or private colleges in Cuba since the triumph of the 1959 revolution. Everything is state-owned. However, the Salesians have been able to find their place and put into practice Don Bosco's Preventive System by reaching young people through work in the parishes.

(ANS - Mexico City) - From 27 to 31 July, Mexico City hosted the meeting of the Central Coordination Committee of the America Salesian School (ESA in Spanish), which audited the ESA IV Continental Meeting in Medellin, Colombia, last 9 - 12 May, and planned ESA's activities for the next five years.

(ANS - Rome) - In June 2017 more than 9,000 unaccompanied foreign minors landed in Italy, vulnerable young people who, after a long sea voyage, find themselves alone and exposed to various risks. An answer to this emergency is the figure of the voluntary guardian, introduced by recently approved Parliamentary Law N 47/2017: "Provisions on measures for the protection of unaccompanied minors." Volunteer tutors are those citizens (over 25 of age) who decide to act as the single child's legal representative so that the child's rights are, indeed, recognized. Starting today, the guide, requirements and profile of this new figure can be downloaded at http://www.salesianperilsociale.it/tutore-volontario. See: "Voluntary guardian for unaccompanied foreign minors. Challenge and Opportunity for the Salesian Family."

  • Democratic Republic of the Congo - Ishara's story, a boy in the street

    (ANS - Bukavu) - In their message of last May 13, the Bishops of Northern and Southern Kivu, members of the Provincial Episcopal Assembly of Bukavu, once again denounced: "The number of street children are growing at an alarming rate." The Salesians active in Bukavu, such as Fr Piero Gavioli, deal with this situation on a daily basis: not statistical data, but real children, innocent victims. On the example of their founder, the Children of Don Bosco still succeed in giving hope, dignity and opportunities for the future.

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • OUR SUMMER IN MARY’S NAME
