The Don Bosco Technical School of Sihanoukville sees its mission as a direct response to poverty through holistic professional education.
“Our enterprise responds to the needs of disadvantaged Cambodian youth by offering them a high quality, free professional education through the Salesian Preventive System, which prepares them for work and for life, with benefit to Cambodia and potentially to other societies,” the school’s website states.
The school was opened in 1997 in Sihanoukville to attend children and youth from poor backgrounds of the southern provinces of Cambodia: Koh Kong, Sihanoukville, Kampot and Takaew. The Project is a technical school where young boys and girls can learn a skill along two years such as electricity, mechanic, auto mechanic and welding for boys, secretariat for girls and hotel school for boys and girls.
