Don Bosco College of Philosophy and Education is a Salesian college based in Moshi- Tanzania. It attracts students from different Salesian English speaking provinces in Africa and beyond. This year we have sixty eight students taking a degree in Philosophy and Education. The students hail from five Salesian provinces of Africa and from twelve countries. The College has as its logo “And the Truth will set you free”. This is a powerful message left to us by Our Saviour in John 8: 32. In the academic circles and so it is to us in this college, the statement points to our strong desire to promote academic freedom and excellence and the power of learning. The statement, again, means much more to us “lovers of wisdom” when we realize that the philosophy we are studying is an activity people undertake when they seek to understand fundamental truths about themselves, the world in which they live, and their relationships to the world and to each other. Our main task therefore is to seek this Truth.
