This is a child abuse poster, specifically made for abused children that are afraid to ask for help.A poster made by The Spanish organization ANAR Foundation (Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk). They started a new street poster campaign that uses the process of lenticular printing to secretly send a message to abused children without alerting their abusers, even if they’re walking together. Anyone over 4’5” sees this view, with a caption: “Sometimes, child abuse is only visible to the child suffering it. However, anyone shorter sees the beaten child version of the poster with another caption saying: “If somebody hurts you, phone us and we’ll help you.”

This is beyond brilliant; a poster made just for those who need to see it. Children who are abused are always afraid to ask for help, or do not know how to ask for it. By using the lenticular printing in such a way can help abused children seek help. However, it is still tricky because the children might think the abuser is seeing what he or she is seeing. However, regardless of the hypothetical situations if both the abused and abuser can see it or not, this is a brilliant idea that should be used globally and not in just one country.

    Oh my god this IS briliant! I love the inventiveness behind this. It’s a form of message that allows for young children to speak out agaisnt child abuse. My only concern is that it may not affect children who are too young to read. Or it also may not allow for them to understand that adults can’t see the top of the sign and therefore believe that their parents can see it too.. which leads them to keep quiet. But all in all, this is a beautiful thing.

    Wow, this is really interesting! This is honestly something that I would have never thought of and its great to see that technology and innovation is being used for the greater good. My only concern with this is if abusers find out about this technology they might not allow the children outside, or hinder their ability to see or read. Overall this is a great point and I’m glad you posted about it!
