In 1935, the government of Haiti invited Salesian missionaries to establish a professional training school for marginalized youth. Since then, the Salesians of Don Bosco have become the second-largest providers of education on the island, teaching and offering other vital services to more than 25,000 children. With Haiti as a model, missionaries have extended similar programs to four additional countries in the area, including the neighboring Dominican Republic. In a region of pervasive poverty, meaningful intervention remains crucial in creating better opportunities, and futures, for all.
