Greetings! Don Bosco Institute for Development and Leadership was inaugurated on 10th July 2015. It is the animation centre of the Slaesians of Don Bosco. The institute has the vision for the young people for their human and intellectual development. Today the world requires people to ‘inspire and empower’ especially the young people. Don Bosco institute is one of such institutes, where the young people will find themselves at home especially in pursuit of knowledge, wisdom and leadership. I agree with Dr Abdul Kalam, our former president who said: “My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed. These are great qualities that they must work towards. This is my message to the young people.”
I am sure the institute will give powerful thrust to its vision of a holistic approach to young people. Don Bosco was a powerful personality who is recognised today all over the world. He was a great leader and role model for the young people. He loved the young people and this institute wants to proclaim that, we, the followers of Don Bosco, love young people.
May everyone who enters this institute experience love of Don Bosco, our father and friend!
God Bless you
