Our Genesis

The Salesians of Don Bosco – an international organization dedicated full time to the service of young people, especially those who are poorer and disadvantaged. The society is founded by St. John Bosco, an Italian saint-educator who has left posterity in his unique way of educating the homeless boys with opportunities for livelihood skills. Today the society works for the development and education of the young especially those most at risk. Through its 3000 Schools, Colleges, Technical schools and youth centres in 132 countries, the Salesians of Don Bosco serve all young people irrespective of religious differences or social inequalities. The need for skill based training for the disadvantaged youth is always felt by the Salesians. A forum was created to strengthen the vocational training program in India which was approved by the Salesian Provincial Conference of South Asia (SPCSA), the apex body of the Don Bosco in India. Don Bosco Tech was set up in 2006 with an objective to provide employment-linked, market-driven vocational courses of short duration to the economically and socially marginalized youth. A network of 330+ skill training centres, Don Bosco Tech is arguably the largest spread across 28 states of India.
