Empowering People, Shaping Lives

BOSCO – Delhi is the development wing of the Salesian Province of New Delhi. Created in the year 1999, it covers 8 states of North India under its wings.

The Developmental activities of the province were supported and supervised from Calcutta till 1997. By August 1997, BOSCO, the Project Office of the province was set up in New Delhi. Fr. A.M. Jose was appointed the Director. Since the Provincial Office at Okhla was not ready, the Project Office was temporarily based at Nazafgarh. In 200, the office started functioning independently with support of full time staff. And since June 2003, the BOSCO – Delhi office is in operation from its new office at Don Bosco Specialized centre, Okhla New Delhi.

Ever since it was set up, BOSCO has coordinated all the developmental activities of the province. The province has tried to give a new orientation to our involvement in the lives of the people. Through animation of the communities, confreres and collaborators through many participatory strategic Planning (PSP) sessions in different parts of the province, the Development Office has tried to create a new mindset in planning developmental activities in the province.
