Don Bosco Technical Secondary School-Embu

Don Bosco Technical Secondary School-Embu is a private educational institution owned and administered by the Salesians of Don Bosco, a religious society of Catholic Priests and Brothers.

In 1983, the Salesians recognized the necessity of providing sound education and technical skills training to young people in and around Embu. This realization led them to establish a Technical Secondary School with the aim of educating and training the youth in trade-related skills and music, enabling them to become responsible and productive citizens characterized by honesty and goodness.

Don Bosco Technical Institute

Bro Umberto Memorial Farm

Don Bosco Embu Farm stands as a testament to the vision and dedication of the late Bro. Umberto Rizzetto SDB. Since the establishment of Don Bosco Embu in 1984 until his passing in 2017, Bro. Umberto tirelessly devoted himself to the goal of achieving self-sufficiency in food production for the institution.

While serving as a manager in the office, Bro. Umberto actively engaged in manual labor on the farm. His hands-on approach and unwavering commitment inspired others and set an example of hard work and determination.

Through the generous support of numerous benefactors, the farm has been equipped with a wide array of farming equipment and tools. This support has played a vital role in enhancing the farm's productivity and efficiency, enabling Don Bosco Embu to meet its food requirements and contribute to its self-sustainability goals.

We offer regular opportunities for prayer, worship, and participation in sacraments, encouraging students to develop a strong foundation in their Catholic faith. We also provide guidance and support to students as they navigate moral and ethical dilemmas, emphasizing the values of compassion, integrity, and service to others.

Is God Calling You?


The late Mzee Jasani came into the scene of Don Bosco Embu from August 2022 only. The Trustees of the Sterling Trust of Mzee Jasani, Mr. Bharat Thaker and Mr. Shashi Shah came to the rescue of Don Bosco Embu in August 2022 to face the various challenges of the Community. The esteemed Trust has supported several activities of Don Bosco Embu from August 2022. The Sterling Trust supported the community to purchase timber for the workshops, food for the students and animals and sponsored 5 cows and 500 chickens to reintroduce the poultry farm. The Sterling Trust also paid the salary of the staff for one month and footed the electricity bill of one month too. In the beginning of this year, 2023 the Sterling Trust also sponsored two blocks of toilets for the boys and girls.
We are very grateful to the late Mzee Jasani for his vision and the Trustees, Mr. Bharat Thaker and Mr. Shashi Shah for their understanding.
