Boys’ Town

Boys’ Town is a non-profit organization started in 1948 by the Brothers of St. Gabriel, a religious institute whose mission is to provide opportunities through education to help children and youth in need. Over the years, Boys’ Town has reached out to young people from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds to equip them with the skills they need to become responsible and contributing members of society.

Its services include residential, fostering, adventure therapy, youth outreach and other community and school-based programmes. The beneficiaries are boys and girls from as young as newborns to 21 years old. They come from disadvantaged and disengaged families and may have faced hardship resulting from difficult home situations; financial struggles; abandonment and abuse. Each year, Boys’ Town works with close to 600 children and youth.
