PDO MOR Director
Fr. Pietro Bianchi
The Planning and Development Office of Don Bosco in the Middle East was officially established in May 2016. Its headquarters are located in Cremisan, Palestine, while two local offices were opened in Egypt in January 2018 and in Syria in July 2018.
With the approval of the Mandate and Statute Documents by the MOR Provincial Council, the office objectives, its procedures and operational agenda have been set out and now represent the basis for its support to local Don Bosco centers in favor of disadvantaged and marginalized youth and kids across the Middle East.
Our Vision: on the wake of Don Bosco’s teaching, we contribute to shaping a world offering equal and fair opportunities to kids and youth of any origin and background, centered on the Christian humanity principles.
Our Mission is to support Don Bosco centers in strengthening and maximizing their impact in promoting education, social empowerment and human development of vulnerable youth, leading them to be good Christians and upright citizens.
