The Father Founder of Salesian of Don Bosco SDB

Johny Bosco

Don Bosco was born on August 16, 1815 at Becchi, near the Italian city of Turin. When he was two years old, his father died, and he had to brave poverty and hardship to study. With the help of his loving mother Margaret, he studied and became a priest. He devoted his life to the service of the youths and came to be called the Father of the youths. Don Bosco died on January 31, 1888, and in 1934 he was declared as a Saint of the Catholic Church.

In the wake of the Industrial Revolution, political unrest, moral and religious emptiness that swept across Europe, Don Bosco saw the city of Turin swarming with boys peddling odds and ends, showblacks, chimney sweeps, newspaper vendors and errand boys. He saw them in the prison, idle and vermin – ridden. In the work places, boys were exploited. The boys were subject to cruel corporal punishments.

Don Bosco realised that thousands of these migrant youths needed education, care and guidance. He opened trade schools to train them. He sat on a bench and resoled a shoe in front of the boys. He started courses in printing, bookbinding, tailoring, carpentry and mechanics. He met the needs of the youth of his day. He provided them with school and work playground, religious instruction, professional training a trade.

Besides devoting his energy to the education and care of young people, he founded the Salesian Society consisting of Priest and Brothers, co-founded the institute of Daughters of Mary Help Of Christians and other groups of collaborators such as the Salesian Co –operators, Past Pupils, etc.. These are several other societies which were founded following the inspiration of Don Bosco, today constitute the Salesian Family, a vast movement f persons dedicated to the service of the Youths. He pioneered an educational system founded on the principles of reason, religious values and loving kindness. The Salesian of Don Bosco (SDB) and the other members of the Salesians Family today work in over 130 countries, devoting themselves to mould the lives of young people.
