Description

The Don Bosco Technical Institute is part of the Don Bosco Network which is a worldwide federation of Salesian NGOs. The work started in 1859 by a priest named John (Don) Bosco. Even now his work continues and impacts millions of children in need.

Especially young people that dropped out of the school system benefit from our work. Not all children have access to all levels of education, especially early childhood and secondary school education. In addition the development of schools is very costly due to the remote locations. The result is, that almost 30% of all primary school leavers are not litereated, students that have visited a secondary school face similar problems. Depending on the exams students have limited choices in which of the 50 secondary school they can study in. The quality of the school varies significantly.

To open new perspectives for the youth, Don Bosco has opened its doors during a time their support was most needed. In 2002 (in officially in 2000) when the ethnic tensions mate the youth suffered most, and the doors of the Don Bosco Technical Institute Henderson were opened. The Institute is a Catholic Organization which is open to girls and boys who are technically inclined and are ready to commit themselves to change.

Don Bosco’s educational concepts is based on reason, religion and kindness. All these three areas are interrelated and part of the preventive system of our education. We are focusing on training a generation that is able to fulfill the expectations of the industries. On the other hand, we focus on forming a youth who can be responsible based on the Bosconian ideals of reasonableness, charity, and kindness. We are helping young men and women to shape their personality and individuality based on their strength and interests. To summarize it a quote of Don Bosco says more than a 1000 words: "Education is the great art of forming human beings". To achieve this we involve the students in decision making and in clubs as well programs outside of the regular school schedule. All these activities are centered around our three year courses, which include varies general subjects and a practical year:

  • Automotive Technology
  • Life Skill Training (Tourism, Hospitality, Clothing & Textiles)
  • Carpentry Technology
  • Computer Technology
  • Electrical Technology
  • Machine Fitting and Maintenance (MFM) Training
