Salesian Missions collaborates with Salesian missionaries in over 130 countries throughout the world and helps provide for the material and spiritual needs of poor and abandoned individuals, especially the young.
We inform the public in the United States of the global work carried out by the missionaries and of the needs they encounter while serving the young and needy. We receive donations from private citizens, corporations, government agencies and foundations to support development projects which not only advance individuals, but also communities. We encourage and promote a prayer apostolate for the needs of our donors, their families and those working in the educative pastoral works in the missions.
We seek not only to assist poor youth but to protect them and teach them how to help themselves through technical training and education. We seek to form the whole person stressing the need for the integration of the physical, psychological, moral and spiritual dimensions of individuals.
