Don Bosco institutions are found all over India. Currently we are present in some 400 places, spread across 27 States and 3 Union Territories of India. Generally, each of these presences will offer a number of youth-related, educational or developmental services.
Currently, we are organized into ten provinces in India. Each province is named after a city where the headquarters (Provincial House) of the province is situated. Thus we have the provinces of Bangalore, Chennai, Dimapur, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi, Panjim, Tiruchy. Each province is headed by a Provincial who is helped by a team of councillors.
The Salesian Provinces of India, along with those of Sri Lanka and Myanmar, form the Salesian Provincial Conference of South Asia (SPCSA). The SPCSA is an inter-provincial body meant primarily for ‘reflection, sharing and coordination’ among the Salesian provinces of South Asia. It is headed by the Regional Councillor for South Asia, who is also a member of the World Council of the Salesians of Don Bosco, with headquarters in Rome. The SPCSA meets twice a year for planning, coordination and evaluation of its activities in the region of South Asia. The SPCSA Bulletin, published twice a year, is the official organ of communication of the SPCSA.
