Founder

DBSAINT JOHN BOSCO, popularly known as Don Bosco (Italian for Father Bosco) was born at Bechi, in Piedmont, Italy on August 16, 1815. At a very young age, he realized that he had been called to work for the poor boys of his era when Europe was under the grip of the Industrial Revolution, and many a young person who came to the cities to study or in search of work fell prey to the many social evils of the time. After being ordained a priest of the Catholic Church in 1841, Don Bosco came to the rescue of these poor boys with his noble method of educating the youth through total dedication and personal involvement in their lives and problems. He is the Founder of Don Bosco Organisation.
