Camila Huecho, Constanza Garces
“Child abuse is more frequent than we believe and emotional marks sometimes silence very important stories that need to be heard”. Melton Fellows Camila Huecho and Constanza Garces from Chile encouraged 70 people to anonymously share their experience and stories through a survey.
The results of these surveys were so powerful and strong that they decided to start sketching up a blog project, called Voz de Melisa (Melisa's Voice) and to continue working on it. “First, we wanted to work more with quantitive information, but when we started to interview people, we realized that the often unheard voices of the victims are way more powerful than any hard data.” The Act of Global Citizenship got lots of support and many more response than expected. Camila and Constanza also got e-mails from people with no relation to the issue, who were thankful to learn about the topic and the unexpected and major presence of this problems in their community.
