Nepal Don Bosco Society(NDBS), Thecho, Lalitpur
Nepal Don Bosco Society came to existence in 2053 B.S. (1996 AD) with the objective of providing various types of academic, technical and vocational education to the economically and socially backward youths and unemployed citizens and helpless people through opening of educational institutions and by maintaining spiritual solidarity among citizens of various classes dwelling in the country and to prepare able, competent, dutiful and self-sustained citizens in future by creating proper opportunity of employment by providing skill-oriented education to them through the said educational institutions.
Focussed on this mission, despite the short span of time, institutions associated with this Society have rendered valuable service to the country by educating nearly 3500 students of the academic section and training 2800 in the vocational trades through its five educational and two technical institutions situated in the Eastern and Central regions of the country.
A great opportunity for the NDBS came with the Earthquake of 2015 which took away over ten thousand lives and property worth millions. The society sprung into action to respond to this tragedy. The Nepal Don Bosco Society (NDBS) extended its full support to alleviate the misery of the helpless, traumatized, impoverished and the struggling situation of the of the people on post-earthquake days. In addition to the relief materials of various kind distributed to the 35000 families of 14 severely affected districts of Nepal, the society has built up 22 temporary learning centres (TLCs) and constructed 2 drinking water projects for the people of two districts and re-constructed 10 government schools of five districts. With support from various donors, the society provided also other support systems like the classroom furniture, computers, solar system etc, and led from the front to provide school uniform and stationery to the students of 40 schools of 7 districts.
The society with its technical schools in the Eastern and the central zones is catering to the rehabilitation dimension of the post earthquake recovery measures of the government.
The society hopes to extend its full support to the country by shaping a strong and skilled youth generation who will build an economically sound and stable Nepal.
