DBFC belongs to the Salesian Congregation of Don Bosco (sdb.org). It started in the Khmer refugee camps in Thailand in the 1980s through experiences of technical schools for children and youth thanks to the support of the United Nations, other organizations and a good number of benefactors that answered the needs of the Cambodian families that fled the war in those troublesome years.
Don Bosco was invited in 1990 by the Royal Government to open technical schools in Cambodia. In 1991 DBFC opened the Don Bosco Technical School in Phnom Penh. It was the first project of many others to come in technical education, children sponsorship, schools rebuilding and youth centers.
The purpose of Don Bosco Foundation is To train orphans and poor youth in skills they can use to get a job and by their work they can come out of the circle of poverty and contribute to the new Cambodia.
Between 1991 and 2010, Don Bosco has supported more than 50 thousand Cambodian children and youth in different programs and with the association of other organizations, for their basic education.
You are encourage to visit our works in Cambodia and, in the name of the Cambodian children and youth, we ask you to join the network of support, so Don Bosco can continue working for the development of the country and a best society based on values like honesty, commitment, discipline and loving kindness.
