Destiny Rescue – Our Successes and New Initiatives

Destiny Rescue (DR) is an internationally-recognized non-profit organisation dedicated to rescuing children trapped in the sex trade. Their vision is to rescue the sexually exploited and enslaved, restore the abused, protect the vulnerable, empower the poor and be a voice for those who can’t speak up for themselves.

They currently operate various programs in Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines and India. DR also has offices in three donor nations: United States, Australia and New Zealand.

Since 2011, DR has rescued nearly 2000 children enslaved around the world, helped keep hundreds more from entering the sex trade through various prevention programs, ensured justice for those who have been wronged, and raised awareness to untold numbers.

Destiny Rescue realises that human trafficking is a global problem. They’re determined to set captives free worldwide. Until no more children are sold, forced or coerced into the sex trade, Destiny Rescue is fully committed to fighting for their freedom, their restoration and their futures.

Jacqui has recently been appointed as Destiny Rescue’s Community Partnerships Manager for Victoria, having spent the majority of her career in senior roles in the education sector, primarily at Christian schools in Whyalla and Melbourne. Jacqui will present details of Destiny Rescue’s work locally and abroad, including details of community partnerships in place and the organisations plans for the future.
