Accra, 20 March, 2023 / 11:26 am (ACI Africa).
Members of the Religious Institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) in Ghana are, in partnership with a Salesian-run entity, providing psychological support to at-risk children aimed at realizing their integration in families.
In a report published Tuesday, March 14, SDB officials say the support to the beneficiaries involves counseling.
“Salesian missionaries are providing psychological support for children at the Don Bosco Child Protection Center in Ashaiman, Ghana,” SDB officials say about the facilities that is in the country’s Catholic Archdiocese of Accra.
They note that the initiative is “supported by the Salesian-run International Voluntary Service (VIS) and ensures children and their families receive the help they need for family reintegration.”
The support involves counseling, which “helps youth gain insight and understanding about why they are at the center and supports them in choosing good behaviors,” SDB officials further say.
