From #MeToo to #StreetKidsToo UBXED spotlights sexual abuse of street children

UBXED.jpgUBXED [unboxed] is a story-based social impact platform dedicated to issues that keep people awake at night, and that the news media report on in the morning.

It attempts to tell stories about sensitive matters with sensitivity. Its stories speak to the adult in the child, and the child in the adult. The central focus of UBXED concerns the cultural and emotional intelligence and welfare of children, and the participation of parents in their children's life.

Its latest release, entitled "Eating the Happiness Eaters", has been emboldened by the #MeToo movement.

Kit Ong, the creator of UBXED, said, "I had the opportunity to do some creative work for Unicef in China and Vietnam. In the course of learning more about Unicef, I learned about the dangers of sexual abuse, violence and exploitation that street children face. On their own, they have no voice to speak out against the atrocities inflicted on their young minds and bodies. So I hope, "Eating the Happiness Eaters", can shine a small light on their plight."
UBXED Season One has six stories tackling a diversity of tough subjects such as war, immigration, dementia, family ties, school safety, humanity, divisiveness, sexual abuse, depression and identity acceptance.
