On July 31, 2020, the Salesian Sisters of 7 Mile, Yangon, Mary Our Help Province Cambodia - Myanmar, consigned the Certificate of completion to seventeen young girls of Mazzarello Vocational Training Center.

 “Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song” (Ps. 95: 2) resounded in the grateful hearts of the young girls standing proudly as they hold their Certificate. They have successfully completed the Housekeeping and Food Production Course for the schoolyear 2019 – 2020 despite the challenges the COVID 19 pandemic posed to the girls in order to arrive to the conclusion of their one-year training. Now, they are looking forward to a bright future as they immerse themselves in the world of work.


The “ Mazzarello VTC” provides the young girls at risk who are interested in the Home Food and Management training that orients them for the employment in the Restaurants and Hotels  in the onetime capital city of Myanmar “Yangon”. Hotels and restaurants are growing and multiplying in number. The Sisters are taking advantage of the opportunity providing skills training for the dropouts from high schools in some places to find a decent job and live a good life in society which will help them pull out from poverty.

The seventeen girls of this 1st batch are from seven Dioceses and two regions. Their one-year course equipped them with professional skills, such as Housekeeping, preparation of Thai and Chinese cuisine, Myanmar desert, Coffee and soft drinks, various kinds of bread making, cookies and cakes.

Sisters not only offer them with Professional skills in order to secure for themselves a good job, but they also impart to them Value Formation, Personality development and Religious Instruction.

The graduation ceremony took place on 31st July, 2020 at 16:30. It was attended by the FMA of St. John Bosco Community. On the outset the students expressed their love and gratitude to their teachers, through songs and dances. The Provincial Sr. Jessica Salvaña, FMA,  in her speech encouraged them to live out what they have learned from the center most importantly the values imparted to them. Moreover,  she assured them that the door of their training center is always open to welcome them when they are in need to a listening presence to unburden their hearts especially when life becomes challenging and tough. The Sisters will always be glad to lend a listening ear and support to them with advice and prayers.
