Although the Don Bosco schools are open to students from different religions or no religions, they belong to the Catholic Church in the head of the Salesian Order of Saint Francis de Sales. Don Bosco has been present among Cambodians since 1988, first in the refugee camps in Thailand and after with the creation of technical schools and children fund in 1991. The Catholic Order do not invite students to the church and those who are willing to deep their faith inclinations, are free to join the catechesis offered by the Cambodian Catholic Church.
