The first four Salesians in Cambodia (Br. Roberto Panetto, Fr. Valter Brigolin, Fr. John Visser and Br. Conrado Lagaya), opened the first technical education programs for youth from poor communities and got support to create different workshops such as electricity, welding, automotive, electronics and printing.
Thanks to all benefactors that have sent funds and equipment to make the dreams of many youth real. Here the arrival of a truck sent to Don Bosco Phnom Penh by Fr. Zuffetti of Italy.
The Salesians have been sensitive to the realities of poverty and marginalisation. The children of Poipet have been always an interest of Don Bosco and it gave the possibility of a new presence in that city at the Thai-Cambodian border.

Thanks for a long list of donors and benefactors that have allowed the continuity and sustainability of Don Bosco in Cambodia, among them, groups and persons like Sawasdee Foundation, SSCR, Kindermissionwerk, SES experts, Misereor, the Salesian procures and many others.
The first literacy classrooms in Poipet and Battambang.
