Our Partner Organisation

Don Bosco Technical Institute (Don Bosco) is part of the Don Bosco Network which is a worldwide federation of Salesian NGOs. The work was started in 1859 by a priest named John (Don) Bosco who believed "Education is the great art of forming human beings." Don Bosco focusses mostly young people that drop out of the school system. The Institute is a Catholic Organization which is open to young women and men who are technically inclined and are ready to commit themselves to change. Not all the young people have access to all levels of education, especially early childhood and secondary school education.

To present young people with options, Don Bosco offers technical education based on reason, religion and kindness.
The institute is focused on training a generation that is able to fulfil the expectations of a variety of trade industries. They also support young people to develop their personality and individuality based on their strength and interests. To achieve their objectives, Don Bosco involves students in decision-making and in clubs as well as programs outside of the regular school schedule. All these activities are centered around a three-year course.
