Casa de acogida don Bosco 'Don Bosco Homes' is a non-for profit organisation founded in Peru by the Salesian Congregation back in 1998. It has 11 homes and around 600 children and teenagers enrolled at present. The educational role that Casa Don Bosco plays focus on children who are at social and financial risk. It delivers an integrated formation that sees them graduating possessing an entrepreneurial mentality and solidarity to become good Christians and honest citizens.
Casa Don Bosco has a number of ‘Homes’ around various States in Peru. We enrol young children as well as teenagers who face extreme poverty, social isolation and whose families come from a diverse background. Our graduates leave Casa Don Bosco at age 22 with a technical qualification that allows them to find a job and become financially independent.
Our work in Australia focuses on finding sponsors for the many young children that enrol our ‘Homes’ in Peru every year, sharing our Christian values with our community in Sydney and organising fundraising activities to support the great work our colleagues and volunteers in Peru do.
