NPR profile of Salesians in Ecuador

Catholic World News - March 23, 2011

National Public Radio has profiled the work of Salesians who assist street children in Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest city. “The Salesians try to get them caught up in school, and teach them a useful skill,” NPR notes. “The hope is that they will be able to support themselves not by selling sodas on the streets but through a real job.”

With 16,106 members, the Salesians of Don Bosco are the second-largest male religious institute, behind only the Jesuits, who number 18,516.
