Our History

The Fabretto story began in 1948, when the Salesian missionary Rev. Rafael Maria Fabretto left his hometown of Vicenza (Venice Region), Italy, and journeyed to Nicaragua.

Before long, he had founded a group of children’s homes – which he referred to as the “Oratorios” – in the rugged countryside of northern Nicaragua.
