Salesians in Ethiopia

The Salesians of Don Bosco usually known as SDB are a religious society of the Catholic Church dedicated to the education and evangelization of youth. Its founder St. John Bosco left them a legacy of love and dedication for the poor and the working class. On the 18 December 1859, St. John Bosco officially started the Salesian Congregation after reading the "Letter of Approval of the Salesian Constitutions". The works of the Oratories, Schools and Youth Centers have spread ever since from Italy to most regions and countries in Europe, Americas, Asia, Australia and Africa.

The Salesians of Don Bosco began work in Ethiopia since 1975. The Salesians of Don Bosco have a well-established presence in five regions of Ethiopia, which are Tigray Regional State - Adigrat, Adwa, Mekelle, Shire; Gambella Regional State - Gambella and Pugnido; in Southern Nations National People Regional State - Soddo and Dilla; Oromia Regional State - Zway, Adamitullu and Debre Zeit and in Addis Ababa City Administration.

The mission of the Salesians is to address the needs of the youth and to meet their basic needs. In the light of this mission, education is the key to prepare young people for their lives. Consequently, the organization is running Kindergartens, Primary Schools, High Schools and Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) Colleges. SDB had implemented and continue to implement a wide range of programs and activities on education which includes technical and vocational trainings, street children programs, agriculture, women’s promotion, feeding programs, and youth focused activities in their youth centers, sponsorship programs, intense awareness raising programs on HIV/AIDS, human trafficking and other emergency programs.
