Who we are

SDB logo

We, the Salesians of Don Bosco [SDB], are an international organization of men dedicated full time to the service of young people, especially those who are poorer and disadvantaged.

Wherever we work, ‘Youth Resource Development’ through education and evangelization is the focus of all our concern - because we believe that our total dedication to the young is our best gift to humanity.

Founded by St. John Bosco, an Italian saint-educator of the nineteenth century, we are in 128 different nations.

This official website of Chennai Salesian community will gives you a glimpse into what we do, how we do it and why we believe that what we do is worth living and dying for.
