The department of Salesian Social Communication in AET Province is at its very beginning and slowly is getting structured in order to comply with the norms and directions from the Headquarters. The main scope of the SC in the province is to provide information at the provincial level and become the link between the communities and the province, between the province and the Congregation in special way in regard to the official website of the Congregation www.sdb.org and the official news agency ANS.
In the Vice-Province there has been a move from the oral tradition as a way of information to a more formal way of communication which is now twofold:
- Don Bosco Newslink which has eventually become as the Don Bosco Bulletin Printed and Online PDF, An App is also available on Android Phones from the play store with the title Don Bosco Bulletin Ethiopia.
- A monthly newsletter with the title AET Rapport which contains a monthly letter by the Provincial, official communications from the provincial and a photo chronicle of the month.
- Province Website: www.donboscoethiopia.org
The Salesian province of AET had a quarterly publication entitled Don Bosco Newslink which gathers information of the various activities that take place in the province. This publication was under the care of the department of Social Communication. Right now from this year 2016 October, this has taken the shape of Don Bosco Bulletin which is printed from Don Bosco Mekanissa every four months.
Fr. Lijo Vadakken SDB is the full-time delegate for Social Communication, besides his duties as the delegate for Youth Ministry of the province as well.
