John Bosco, commonly known as Don Bosco, was born in 1815 at Becchi, a village near Turin, Italy. At the age of two, his father died. John, who was to become the father of orphans became an orphan himself at such a tender age. Through heroic sacrifices and by dint of hard work he became a priest in 1841.
As a priest, he dedicated himself to the service of boys, especially the poor by offering them food, lodging and education. Through the help of generous persons he opened technical institutes, hostels, schools and youth centres. Soon he founded a Society of Collaborators, and extended his work to the whole of Europe and the other continents.
