Nepal Don Bosco Society is a Registered NGO run by the Salesians of Don Bosco, a Catholic Religious Institute. Nepal Don Bosco Society was registered with the Kathmandu District Administration on 14 August 1996 and affiliated to the Social Welfare Council of Nepal on 14 December 1999. It forms a part of the International Don Bosco Society which is present in 130 countries worldwide and is headquartered in Rome, Italy. The Nepal Don Bosco Society falls under jurisdiction of the Salesian Province of Kolkata, India, for its general administrative work. Seeking to promote the education of poor young people in the Kathmandu valley and Nepal’s outbacks, Nepal Don Bosco society began its work in 1999 with a high school at Siddhipur, a village within Lalitpur District. A small hostel was begun in 2002 for poor children from remote villages.
For the benefit of the many school dropouts in the region, a vocational training institute was started in Thecho, a Kathmandu suburb situtated 7kms from the city centre. What began in 2001 as a modest computer centre has today grown into a full-fledged Technical Training Institute that offers Basic Computer Application, Computer Graphics, Tally Accounting, Computer Hardware, Building Electrician, Industrial Electrician, Mobile Repairing, Tailoring and Fashion, Apparel and Life Style Design, housed in a spacious building equipped with modern facilities.
Nepal Don Bosco Society at Thecho has a coaching centre for poor children from classes I through VIII. About 220 students attend free coaching classes from 4.00PM till 6.30PM, six days a week under the loving guidance of six teachers.
