Replication has always been the main strategy for the Break the Silence campaign in providing awareness, support and protection to communities and children about child sexual abuse prevention.
Children with disabilities and in particular, Deaf children, are highly vulnerable to child sexual abuse. In light of this, Stairway Foundation has put special focus on reaching out to this particular sector of society with the Break the Silence campaign. The Gualandi Volunteer Services Program (GSV) of Cebu City and the Support and Empower Abused Deaf Children (SEDAC) of Quezon City are using the BTS stategy of replication to reach out to the Deaf community. Currently, GSVP has facilitated trainings, through Stairway, in different areas in Visayas and Mindinao, namely Bohol, Dumaguete and Davao. Further, SEADC has trained themselves and other Deaf advocates who are reaching out to different parts of Metro Manila.
