Don Bosco Samoa (DBS) is an outreach of the Salesians of Don Bosco of the Australia Pacific Province.


Our goal is to provide poor and disadvantaged young people in Samoa with hope and a positive future by means of education, trades training, sport and recreation activities and cultural opportunities.

We currently work in the following locations in Samoa, Fiji and New Zealand:

The Salesian priests and brothers working with Don Bosco Samoa are mainly local Samoans, together with other Salesians originally from the Netherlands, Tonga, Australia, the Philippines and Myanmar (Burma). The staff at our centres are primarily Samoans, supported by a small number of volunteers.
