Manzini Youth Care provides holistic Christian care in meeting the basic needs of food, shelter, education, training and life skills to marginalized young people at risk through poverty. Guided by Salesian values of reasonableness and kindness, Manzini Youth Care supports young people in their spiritual and social development.
From their initial management of the Salesian schools, the Salesians involvement in the community has expanded over the years. The major Salesian project has been that of Manzini Youth Care, but there are other important activities such as their pastoral and chaplaincy work. The Salesians are chaplains at the University of Swaziland and Waterford School, as well as for the Portuguese Catholic community. Salesians travel around the country providing mass for the catholic communities in more remote locations without permanent parish priests as well as sharing in the provision of services at the country’s cathedral.
