By World Confederation of Past Pupils of Don Bosco

       Rome, 27 June 2022 -- On 24 June the 152nd anniversary of their Association - the World Confederation of the Past Pupils of Don Bosco was proud to share three meaningful gifts: the 46th Newsflash (60 page-quarterly digital newsletter in 4 languages), the English version of Carlo Gastini's Biography (by Sergio Rodriguez Lopez-Roy) and also their new 6-year Strategic Plan (2021-2027). Let's make the best of these three digital gifts!

       Strategic objectives

       Objective 1:

       Spread the charism and mission of the Past Pupils and Friends of Don Bosco in today’s reality. Spreading our Salesian charism involves understanding and recognising the gifts of the Holy Spirit bestowed on Don Bosco in his mission to educate and care for the young. Don Bosco’s charism focuses on caring for the person so that he or she can achieve “happiness in this life and the next”.

       Objective 2:

       Provide meaningful and relevant opportunities to foster the holistic formation and ongoing education of the Past Pupils and Friends of Don Bosco Based on education and formation in the Salesian way of life, the aim of every Past Pupil and Friend of Don Bosco is to live the life of ‘upright citizens and good Christians’. The organisation aims to help and assist Past Pupils and Friends to be ‘the salt of the earth and the light of the world’.

       Objective 3:

       Reach out to the young, especially “those who are poor, in danger and abandoned” and support Past Pupils and Friends of Don Bosco by showing social solidarity through the most appropriate means e.g., youth ministry, family, formation, cultural animation … Enriched by the Christian formation and charism of Don Bosco, Past Pupils and Friends of Don Bosco are witnesses in their daily life through our apostolic engagement. Since our Foundation, our purpose has been twofold:

       (a) to support Past Pupils and Friends of Don Bosco to live a fulfilled life of happiness with their families, in their workplace and in the communities where they live.

       (b) to further and assist Salesian work with the young.

       Objective 4:

       Build our individual, organisational and institutional capacity in the world that we live in today and become more relevant and effective by using all the available resources which complement our values, our aims, our priorities and our strategic plan. We recognise that capacity building involves a long-term process requiring a systematic approach based on bringing about change in individual, organisational, and institutional capacity. Our aim is to continue to improve the ability of our organisation on a global, regional, national, provincial, and local level, to recognise and improve our capacity and to harness organisational culture and optimise our performance at all levels of governance.
