Abandoned, parentless, and in desperate need of a safe place to live – those were the circumstances for these children. After suffering neglect and poverty, many of the boys who come to St. John Bosco Boys Orphanage are significantly delayed in their reading, writing, and math skills compared to their peers in the traditional school system.
At SJB, the boys are cared for and supported like family. They are given quality education led by skilled teachers who cater to each child’s individual needs. Any boy in need of a safe place to live aged 4-16 is welcome to the center, even if they are not abandoned or parentless.
Each child is given the gift of security, inner strength, and a greater sense of self-confidence. The boys learn to feel significant in their own right and gain a better understanding of how much God loves them. The Sisters of Mercy help them with evening study sessions and daily assignments, giving these boys a fighting chance at a brighter future.
