Shine the light of hope for vulnerable children

In more than 130 countries around the world, our Salesian missionaries work tirelessly on behalf of homeless youth—providing the comprehensive support they desperately need to turn their lives around.

But the need remains great. And we’re depending on friends like you to help us provide support to more kids.

Ongoing conflicts, natural disasters, and rising global inequality mean that more and more children will end up living outside their families’ care—where they will face alarmingly high rates of exploitation and violence. Invisible to a society that should be protecting them, they will live a wretched existence defined by chronic hunger, illness and despair.

You can help shine the light of hope into the darkest corners of their lives.

We know from experience that children survive, and thrive, with the right mix of physical, social and educational support. Around the world, our missionaries are ready to further expand their programs to provide the services that homeless youth so desperately need.

Please, will you make a gift to Salesian Missions today?

Wherever these lost and desperate children cry out for help, we will be there—with the security, encouragement and opportunities they need to build brighter futures. Thank you!
