Animation Research
“A Good Boy” is a story of pedophilia. “Daughter” is about a 12-year-old girl, who becomes a victim of sexual abuse by her own father. These two animations were produced by Stairway Foundation, Inc. in an effort to educate the public about the largely hidden problem of child sexual abuse. They assist the public in addressing subjects that are very hard to talk openly about, but which must be talked about as a matter of urgency and if we are going to prevent further damage to vulnerable individuals and to society.

Creating Child Friendly Spaces for the PNP Women and Childrens Protection Centers
Stairway has been involved with advocacy on Children’s Rights and Child Sexual Abuse Prevention for a substantial number of years already, raising awareness among different sectors of society regarding the importance of “Breaking the Silence” surrounding the issue of Child Sexual Abuse. Being involved primarily with prevention work, Stairway has always seen the importance of addressing the issue on a holistic manner. Giving importance to prevention and advocacy work would entail addressing the need to also strengthen the other side of the equation of the child protection field – the reactive/aftercare sector.

Evaluation of Cracked Mirrors I
AbstractThis study evaluated the Cracked Mirrors theater production for advocacy against child sexual abuse and exploitation. Through the literature review, the need for creative advocacy projects and the reasons to evaluate those projects are clearly presented. Also presented in the literature is the importance of changing the way society views and ignores the victims of sexual abuse. The Cracked Mirrors performance incorporates rap and song into a series of four monologues to express the painful realities of child sexual abuse and exploitation. This evaluation study utilized a survey questionnaire to randomly poll 446 audience members from nine showings in 5 separate venues within Manila, Philippines. Respondents represented various ages and countries but were not asked for any personal information.
