Our Inspiration St. John Bosco (popularly known as Don Bosco) was born in Italy. He is remembered as a man who dedicated his life to the service of abandoned young people. John Bosco created an order in the CatholicChurch, called the Salesians. He was a great educator, employing teaching methods based on love rather than punishment. His method of education is known as The Preventive System. He believed education to be a ‘matter of the heart’; and said that the students must not only be loved, but know that they are loved. Don Bosco institutions are not meres schools; they are a family and education here is a way of life. To have a full comprehension of how it works it has to be seen in action.
The Don Bosco Society is an international organization dedicated to the service of children and youth, especially through the field of education. Founded in 1859 it is now present in 132 countries across the world. In 1906 the Don Bosco Society started working in India.
