|About||Salesians of Don Bosco|
Open to the cultural values of the lands in which we work, we try to understand young people and become part of them so as to incarnate in them the message of the Gospel.
The needs of the young, of ordinary people, the desire to work with the Church and in her name, inspire and shape our concrete pastoral activity so as to bring about a more just world and one of greater fellowship in Christ.
The Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), commonly referred to as the “Salesians” belong to a Religious Congregation of priests and brothers in the Roman Catholic Church. We live and work in communities in 128 countries of the world.
In Southern Africa (AFM = Africa Meridianale) we have formed seven communities, working in South Africa, Swaziland and Lesotho.
These communities usually manage their own youth development activities, which range from youth oratories and schools to skills training programmes and HIV/Aids interventions.
The communities are located in: Cape Town at the Salesian Institute, and at Lansdowne at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish. Gauteng at the Bosco Youth Centre near Walkerville; the Novitiate in Ennerdale, and at Ozanam House in Johannesburg. In Swaziland the community is at the Salesian High School in Manzini, and in Lesotho at St Luke’s Mission in Maputsoe.
