Since 1979, the Salesians of Don Bosco have already planned to have a new presence in Iloilo where many students of Don Bosco Victorias came from. Since then, there were continuous efforts to materialize the plan. The plans in the year 1993 did not prosper due to the difficulty of converting the land from agricultural to institutional. This situation did not hinder the Salesians to pursue their plan.
It was in 1996 that the late Archbishop Alberto Piamonte of the Diocese of Jaro, being an admirer of St. John Bosco, donated a 7 hectare land in Dumangas. Don Bosco was so thankful and enthusiastic of the offer that they immediately acted upon it. Fr. Jaime M. Carmona, SDB, who was then assigned in Mambucal followed up the program started by Fr. Edgardo Espiritu and the group of Don Bosco Alumni. Hon. Narsico D. Monfort, Congressman 4th District of Iloilo where Dumangas belongs, facilitated the conversion of the land. With the site final and ready, construction of the buildings for the new Don Bosco-Iloilo began. The construction of Phase 1(Boys’ Home Building, General Shop, Tractor Shed and sports facilities like basketball court and football field) started in 1996 and the Boys’ Home Building was finished October, 1997.
Don Bosco-Dumangas formally opened its doors as a home for marginalized boys and a training center for the out-of-school youth in February 1998. Don Bosco’s presence in Dumangas is part of the church’s growing consciousness that the countryside of Iloilo should be developed to help solve the social and economic problems of the province. The Catholic Archdiocese of Jaro, through the late Archbishop Alberto Piamonte, wished to be more relevant in addressing the problem of poverty that he asked the Salesians to put up a Boys’ Home and Training Center.

Don Bosco Boys’ Home and Training Center provides shelter – a home away from home to about 125 boys in elementary, in high school, and in manpower skills training/vocational course and sends them to school. The elementary boys attend classes at Tiltilon Elementary School, a half-kilometer walk; the high school boys are transported by the Boys’ Home bus to the University of Cebu- Compostela; while those enrolling in the vocational course do it in the Don Bosco Training Center, just within the compound of DBBH. Through its training center, offers them vocational skills to work and earn their bread. Shelter, school, and skills are not all. DBBH has yet something more to offer these youngsters: Salesian spirituality that encompasses the daily life duties, joy and optimism, friendship with Jesus and Mary, communion with the Church, and responsible service. DBBH envisions the Boys’ Home graduates as able to support themselves and their families; able to remain faithful to his Christian duties and able to show gratitude by supporting Boys’ Home in whatever way they can.

Approximately 5,000 street children roam the streets and urban barangays (communities) in the City of Cebu alone. These children proliferate as a result of widespread poverty in the rural areas, forcing families to converge in the city seeking for survival. A number of these children come from street families, where any sidewalk or vacant lot become home, sheltered from the elements with boxes and given privacy by the tattered pieces of cloth that serve as walls. To help augment the almost non-existent family income, the children engage in scavenging, begging, watch-your-car services and other odd jobs. Others become victims of syndicated crimes like snatching and prostitution.

It is for these stark and painful realities that Don Bosco Boys’ Home is established. Instead of leaving these children on the streets and making them easy preys to the ills of society, Don Bosco Boys’ Home (DBBH) gives them the opportunity to help themselves in life through education and training, formation, and psycho-social interventions.
The compelling force behind this endeavor is the attainment of Don Bosco’s goal of education and integral human development for the marginalized youth. With this goal comes the realization of helping these youngsters find immediate gainful employment and in the process, helping them become responsible and productive citizens of the country.
