A fresh perspective on the father, friend & teacher of youth!
This publication offers a new perspective on the life of Don Bosco through an elaborate study. Seen through the lens of Galtung's theory, the categories of peacekeeping, peacemaking and peacebuilding create interpretative coordinates that help to throw new light on the preventive and expressive dimensions of Don Bosco's educational method for our times.

The Marian Collection (700,000 views on Sept , 30, 2022)
A tribute to the Mother of Jesus Christ and therefore, the world's first Christ-bearer. A modest attestation to the joy of believing in a God who renews and redeems the world through the generous cooperation of ordinary, insignificant people ready to make His dream a reality in their everyday lives - just like Mary.
Salesian Expressive Education
In 2011 and 2012, Divyadaan, Journal of Philosophy & Education published a set of articles by authors willing to explore themes related to 'Salesian Expressive Education'. The articles have now been brought together in a web-book in PDF format.
The original article on Don Bosco's Expressive System that had triggered their reflection is included in the Appendix of this collection.
The authors are Salesians: Kenneth Pereira, Eunan McDonnell, Tadeusz Lewicki, Mario Comoglio and Chinappan Antonyraj.
Teach Peace Now! Later may be too late!
The teachers' manual, Exercises in Peace Education, and the supplementary workbook for students, We Choose Peace, are now available for free (no strings attached, and no 'sign in' required).
The teachers’ resource manual consists of 53 lesson plans for educators of South Asia for promoting peace and nonviolence among young people from ages 5 to 17. Through experiential and participatory learning, they are encouraged to develop their knowledge, attitudes and skills in order to become peace-filled persons and proactive peacebuilders.
The lessons raise awareness, provoke thinking, challenge stereotypes, point to solutions and incite to action.
To be relevant to all South Asians without distinction, an
attempt has been made to sustain a multi-ethnic, pluri-cultural and inter-religious viewpoint.
COURSES based on the manual are also organized during the months of July-August. Those interested may contact the author.
