Bosco Boys began in 1990 as a “weekend contact” with street children.
In 1995, His Holiness, Pope John Paul II blessed the foundation stone of the structure that is now the hub of a variety of projects on behalf of needy youth. It essentially consists of 3 centres:
Bosco Boys- Langata. This is the reception center which houses about 35 boys.
Besides these centers, many adolescents are undergoing technical training or are receiving secondary education in the various schools around the country. Two nursery schools are also organized in the slums of Kariua and Kuwinda. For young adults, a greater thrust towards self-reliance is pursued through a well equipped carpentry, a welding workshop, a tailoring section, screen printing and motor vehicle mechanic units and most recently, a poultry unit which is income generating through the sale of eggs and meat.
The aim that underlines all this activity on behalf of children and youth-at-risk is to develop in them a confidence that will enhance their self-esteem and promote the skills they need to be productive and well-adjusted individuals in society.
