The Maltese National Federation of Past Pupils and Friends of Don Bosco is launching a new project on Youth Faith Tourism. For this purpose, our organisation is setting up a pastoral educational and formation project to empower people, particularly young people, through the provision of non-formal education, cultural awareness and the promotion of faith tourism in Malta and Gozo.

We will seek to promote the niche of faith youth tourism in Malta and Gozo. Faith tourism for young people seeks to promote the cultural, educational and spiritual dimension. It will also offer similar experiences from Maltese and Gozitan young people to travel abroad and experience faith tourism in the Salesian Spirit.
