The Laura Vicuna Women’s Development and Training Center in Victorias City, Negros Occidental is a laudable community-based training center run by the Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco providing one to two year technical-vocational courses with values formation, living up to its slogan “to give hope a better future.”


Its vision is to uplift the living standards of low income families such as sugarcane workers in Victorias City and nearby haciendas and to empower working minors, out-of-school youth, young men and women to acquire various skills towards building a quality and value-laden life for their families and contributing to the development of society. To encourage the poor deserving students to study and complete their course, the Center needs financial support to continue to offer free dormitory, lunch and snacks, school fees, uniform and laboratory materials and upgrade the facilities.
