Improving children's life quality by teaching social-emotional skills in a fun, playful way.

I've experienced many traumatic events in my childhood.
Those events weren't the main reason that I was suffering.
It was because I didn't know how to have self-compassion,
and I had no idea how to communicate and ask for help.
learn soft skills that help them to have a happy childhood
Use fun activities with children to co-create a beautiful childhood for them.
Now, I have a beautiful, fulfilling life. I want to be a part of children's journey to find their awesome selves.
These are the number of children we have reached until now!
Be part of our family to help more children!

Meeka's Secret app is a breath of fresh air in opening the lines of communication on a very important topic, "Child Abuse". As an educator, I believe Meeka could help both child and parent to become aware, educated, and feel comfortable to open a dialogue about this crucial matter.
Meeka can be used as a preventive app or as a start to a road to recovery for children, who have been sexually abused. I recommend Meeka to all parents, to first examine its power of communication and storytelling on their own, and second to spend together with their child to watch and discuss as it unfolds. Meeka brings children and parents together.

These changemakers help us to create an impact on children's lives
Children can learn soft skills so they can use any event as an opportunity to grow and blossom.
They can learn this through stories and games such as “Meeka’s Secret” and through the other companion apps now in development where they can interact with their avatar that uses techniques to build social-emotional skills.
