Bangalore, Oct. 18. The Planning and Development Organisation (PDO; BREADS Bangalore) of the Province of Bangalore, to provide clarity through relevant policies to accomplish its goals, has drafted and released the Child Safeguarding Policies (CSPs) as supportive references for child-related sectors in the Province. The CSPs are for various sectors in the Province like childcare institutions, social work centres, schools, colleges, skill training centres, parishes, aspirantates, pre-novitiate, novitiate, philosophates, and the theologate.
These policies seek to ensure the safeguarding of children and vulnerable people under the purview of the Province, by defining and customising structures and processes of care and protection in keeping with State and Church requirements. Child safeguarding is not viewed merely as a project requirement (though it is), but as an integrated approach in the mission of the Province. The policies drafted are in consultation and participation with various stakeholders on the ground, including children themselves.

Fr Joyce Thonikuzhiyil SDB, Provincial of the Salesian Province of Bangalore, released the compilation of Child Safeguarding Policies on 17 October 2020 at the Provincial House. Fr Thonikuzhiyil handed over the first copy of the Guidelines to the Vice-Provincial, Fr Jose Koyickal SDB in the presence of the Province Economer, Fr P.S George SDB, and Province Secretary, Fr Freddie Pereira SDB, Fr Joy Nedumparambil SDB, Executive Director of BREADS and Fr Rubin Mathew SDB, Asst. Director of BREADS.
