“Raising is above all a matter of the heart” – This aphorism is attributed to the founder of the order, Johannes Don Bosco, who helped young people who were neglected in times of social upheaval to learn and integrate within society. In this sense, the Salesians Don Boscos , the Don Bosco sisters and “Jugend Eine Welt” follow an emancipatory educational mandate and founded the Don Bosco Refugee Agency Austria on December 18, 2002 to provide unaccompanied minor refugees (so-called UMF) protection, education and a fair Allow opportunity for integration.
On December 18, 1859, Don Bosco founded the Society of St. Franz von Sales – today Salesian Don Boscos. We at the Don Bosco Refugee Agency offer the young people a temporary home and socio-educational support in the spirit of Don Bosco. United by the idea of creating the best conditions for a future worth living for the young people … so that the lives of young people succeed!
The Don Bosco Refugee Agency is an initiative of the Salesians Don Bosco, the Don Bosco sisters and Youth One World.
