Nairobi, 04 November, 2021 / 2:19 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the Religious Institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) are empowering youth from disadvantaged backgrounds in Kenya with technical skills, officials of the Religious Order have reported.
In a Wednesday, November 3 report, officials of Salesian Missions, the U.S. development arm of SDB say, “Don Bosco Boys Town, located in Nairobi, Kenya, teaches technical skills to youth from economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds.”
“These youth, who live in slums and other informal settlements, have little chance for an education and advancement in life,” they further say in the report published by Mission Newswire, the official news service of Salesian Missions.
They add in reference to the beneficiaries of the Nairobi facility, “Salesians are ensuring they are able to gain the skills for later employment.”
“Don Bosco Boys Town also provides education and technical skills training to former street children and offers a primary, secondary and technical school,” officials of Salesian Missions add in the November 3 report.
