Since 1875, when a handful of Salesian priests first arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina, our missionaries have been serving some of South America’s most impoverished children and families. What began as a modest effort to establish a school for poor and abandoned youth, has today grown to include robust programs in ten of the continent’s countries: providing the vital educational and social services required to overcome severe income inequality and injustice on a personal and community-wide level.

*Any goods, services, or funds provided by Salesian Missions to programs located in this country were administered in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including sanctions administered by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control.
