  • Stop sexual crimes against women and children. Stop "cover-up practices" of sexual offences by the church. Provide effective mechanism to report any such offences to the police with immediate effect. Ensure strict, foolproof security/online method to prevent tampering of log book, visitor\s registers in convents, bishop\s houses, and parishes. Report to the local police immediately any sexual offences and abuses in convents, bishop’s houses, congregations, seminaries, church parishes, & Sunday classes. 
  • Set up Grievance Cells with immediate effect to prevent sexual crimes against minor girls, nuns in convents, altar boys, and working women in light of the Supreme Court guidelines against sexual offences in working places. Provide names and details of sexual offenders in the church on a dedicated website for public shaming and prevention of sexual and financial crimes in the church.
  • Provide adequate compensation to sexual abuse victims. Set up a fund and provide adequate financial compensation for sexual abuse victims in the church/congregation and provide a severance financial assistance for those leaving the congregation due to victimization to enable them to lead a decent livelihood subsequent to leaving the congregation/seminary.
