What does the app do?
Meeka's Secret is an app that aims to open the lines of communication on stranger danger and child sexual abuse. The app can help parents to become aware, educated, and feel comfortable to talk to their child about sexual abuse. It can be used a preventive tool or as a start to a road to recovery for children who have been sexually abused.
The app tells the story of a gender-neutral insect, Meeka, whose wings are considered its private parts that should not be touched by others. When an adult insect touches Meeka’s wings, the little one becomes confused about how to respond and react. Through stunning digital artistry and powerful storytelling, viewers are taught how to speak up, self-advocate and heal.
