The President Bro. Giles, CMSF who is also a Provincial in Trivandrum Franciscan brothers, invoked God’s blessing during the Executive Body meeting. The whole body of brothers resolved to enter into the current problem affecting India today. They have decided to hold Seminar cum workshop all over India on Child Abuse and Child rights. In the first phase the Seminar cum workshop will be for the Religious Brothers who are involved in Educational and Social Ministry on how to handle child abuse cases and on how to counsel them after the trauma.

Br. Paul Augustine Siluvai of Patrician brothers has specialised on this subject and would move around India conducting the awareness programmes. The NARBI has selected some strategic places like: Tamilnadu Brothers regional unit at Trichy, Karnataka brothers regional union at CRI, Bangalore, The Kerala Brothers regional unit at Kochi, the Mumbai Goa brothers regional unit in Mumbai, the Northern brothers regional unit in Delhi and the North Eastern brothers regional unit at Guwahati Montfort etc.

The second phase will be for the students to become aware and be cautious. It is a unique news worthy step taken by the Religious Brothers in India.
