Don Bosco has different educational facilities in our over 20 communities across Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.There are 12 pre and basic schools, 5 secondary schools, 5 Technical/ Vocational Education and Training centers, 7 hostels and boarding houses.

Across all ages there is a learning facility in Anglophone West Africa Province of Don Bosco ensuring lifelong learning opportunities.

Pre schools: The preventive system of education as practiced by the Salesian educational system has been of great help to children just being introduced into the educational system.

The children meet friendly and loving instructors who guide them in early learning skills to develop their brain and social interactions.

The basic schools: The basic schools prepare children between the ages of 6 and 12 for the secondary school education using the preventive system as taught by Don Bosco.

Most of the students who genuinely have financial challenges are given scholarships.

Our secondary schools are the most sort after in these communities due to the quality of support given these students and the high academic standards.

Technical/ Vocational Education and Training centres: Technical and Vocational educational Training is one of the pillars of the preventive systems as taught by Don Bosco.

The market relevant training given the students ensure they either get employment after education or start their own businesses.

Scholarships are mostly awarded to children from underprivileged homes and communities to make them financially empowered.

Refresher courses are also given to the private sectors to improve their knowledge base in new technologies.

Hostel and Boarding facilities: Living places are created for students to learn the act of living with others, cleaning, cooking and being independent in life.

The atmosphere created helps these student to grow in good communication and interpersonal skills.

These skills are the most needed in most industries now.

The weekend extracurricular activities such as sports, book reviews, debate, singing and dancing all help shape our students into well rounded adults.

The hostels and boarding houses are mostly subsided for students and under privileged students get free housing in order to study in our schools.

There are plans underway to get more hostel facilities in some of our communities and your support can go a long way to help us create more of these transforming living places for our students.
