Introduction

It is strange the way in which things are presented and renewed in the history of the Church.

Faced with the vicissitudes of Don Bosco, I have always remained astonished, amazed, and attracted by his person and by his strength, by my presence of the supernatural in his daily life. I used to think as soon as I went to secondary school that it was fantastic to be able to relive even a little of what he had lived! From my youth I perceived Don Bosco in my heart, I heard that I was profoundly and radically Salesian. For three years I thought, and I went into crisis several times, to understand if I was called to become a Salesian priest, and then the facts and some doubts in my heart convinced me not to enter the seminary.

The week from 19 to 23 November 2019, the responsible of "the job training center of salesian Don Bosco (SDB) et The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians of Madagascar, met in Antsirabe, to share their professional formative experiences, good practices as well as obstacles during the year 2019 which will soon come to an end.
