Who is Don Bosco?

John Bosco (16 August 1815 – 31 January 1888), commonly known as Don Bosco, was an Italian Roman Catholic Priest, educator and writer. During his early life Italy was experiencing social, political and religious turmoil as a result of the Industrial Revolution. At this time exploitation of poor children, in particular in the form of child labour, was a common practice. 

Don Bosco established his legacy through creating the Salesians of Don Bosco – a group of Priests, Sisters and Brothers who worked together and dedicated their lives to the betterment of disadvantaged and marginalised youth. During his life Don Bosco provided young people with education and care and fostered teaching methods based on love rather than publisment. He established a network of organisations and centres to spread and carry on his teachings. Today Don Bosco’s legacy of care remains alive in 132 countries around world – with many institutions continuing to practice and share his educational philosophy.
