(Excerpt) On the occasion of the International Literacy Day marked September 8, members of the Religious Institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) have highlighted their education programs seeking to empower vulnerable youth in Zambia.

In a report published Thursday, September 8, SDB members speak about the institutions of learning that have been established in an effort to reach out to “poor youth who could not afford other schools” in Zambia’s “remote places”.

“The project also installed new toilets for the classrooms,” they further say, and add, “Salesians were able to construct the foundation, roofing, walls, windows and doors of the classrooms, as well as install electrical and plumbing. They also furnished the classrooms.”
