Phnom Penh

The Don Bosco Technical School of Phnom Penh is the oldest Don Bosco school in the country. Founded in 1991, the school has sought to answer the educational needs of a country in its post-war period of reconstruction. This Technical School is the first institution to provide technical skill education to young adults in extreme poverty and to facilitate the schooling of marginalised children. It was also the first printing press of Cambodia after the war.

The Don Bosco Technical School Phnom Penh is a community of Salesians, lay mission partners, youth and children, living the spirit and method of St. John Bosco for a new civilization of love. The community in Phnom Penh is composed of Fr. Roel (rector), Fr. Charles Arun, Fr. Nguyen Nhat Khoa Joseph, Br. Raymond Lawrence and Br. Somony Kong John Bosco.

Nowadays, the students can study in six different sections: automotive, mechanic, electronic, computer, electricity and printing. Thanks to the qualified teachers and the material received by donations, the students can improve their skills and directly put their theoretical lessons into practice. At the end of the formation, which lasts 2 years, students immediately find work in big companies in Cambodia and can thus provide for their livelihood while also helping their families.

The campus of Phnom Penh also has a farm with 3 permanents workers but the students come to help everyday. The farm produces fish, chickens but also a lot of vegetables and fruits: pumpkin, tomatoes, cucumber, eggplant… The farm allows to provide food for the community and the boarders but a part of the produce is also sold. The money earned by the sale allows to buy other type of foods or some material for the school.
