Don Bosco Technical school Sihanoukville was founded in 1999 (1997) to provide technical training for young people especially those who are from poor or vulnerable background. Our school offer various programs and skills: a technical or a hotel formation.
Don Bosco Sihanoukville is also the headquarter of “Don Bosco Children Fund of Cambodia (DBCF)” which aim to provide scholarships for younger children who are orphans and/or abandoned to be able to go back to school.
The Don Bosco Technical School Sihanoukville is a community of Salesians, lay mission partners, youth and children, living the spirit and method of St. John Bosco for a new civilization of love. The community in Sihanoukville is composed by Father Eugene (rector), Brother Martin Br. Martin Tan Tai (dean of the school and hotel director), Brother Roberto Br. Roberto Panetto (Bursar in charge of non-teaching (?) Economer and responsible Director of “Don Bosco Children Fund of Cambodia”), Brother Bao Br. Bao Paul and Brother Ieth (Br. Prak Ieth John Bosco).
The students from the technical school can learn in electrical, secretary or mechanical sections. The school is in relation with many organizations that donate a lot of technical device. Thanks to this high quality material, the students can improve their skills and directly put their theoretical lessons into practice. At the end of the school, which lasts 2 years, students immediately find work in big company in Cambodia and can thus provide for their livelihood while also helping their families.
Don Bosco Children Home
The campus of Don Bosco Sihanoukville has also a children home and a kindergarten with children from 2 to 9 years old. The children who lives in the Don Bosco children home are sponsored by the DBCF. Usually, one child have three sponsors: one for food and lodge, one for clothing, hygiene and medical/dental care and one for school, uniform and stationaries including transportation. We plan to bring the children up until they finish the professional school and ready for a job: from the age of 4 to 20.
