As a survivor of child sexual abuse, she made her story public to fight the stigma that considers victims to be weak, shameful and silent, and throughout a strategic leadership, empowered other victims to become agents of change for addressing domestic and sexual violence. In 2016, with her husband Ricardo, she launched The Ecuador Says NO MORE campaign, which reached 12.7 million inhabitants, mobilized thousands of victims and forced the government to address sexual abuse and abolish the statute of limitation on sexual crimes against children.
Her organization developed education programs in alliance with the local government and UNICEF, which benefit 4.8 million of children and trained 500,000 key adults, integrating audiovisual tools with 20 million downloads across the world, and the first tools to prevent sexual abuse in women and children with disabilities.
When COVID brought about mass lockdowns, they developed free webinars, with 6,000 participants from 12 countries, who were trained to fight inequity, gender based violence, to build safe environments, and facilitate victims’ access to justice. Their organization is expanding their work through Latin America, where 40 million children under the age of 15 suffer from violence.
