Our Mission / Objective

Destiny Rescue is an Australian-based, internationally recognised, non-profit organisation, who has been at the forefront of rescuing trafficked and sexually enslaved children from predominantly S.E. Asian and Caribbean hotspots for many years.

In 2018 alone, we rescued 1,074 children. Our goal for 2019 is 1,250!

With over one million children trafficked into situations of sexual exploitation, we made it our mission to fight this present-day injustice until it exists no more.

Our holistic approach ensures that rescued children are provided with the care and assistance to meet their individual needs and to give them the best chance to fulfil their goals, dreams and destiny.

But we can’t do it without your help.

We rely solely on the generosity of private donors & sponsors like you.

“we only have 2 choices:

Do NOTHING or Do SOMETHING”

Tony Kirwan – Founder of Destiny Rescue

Our Services

Prevention:   Our Undercover Teams identify high-risk children by monitoring locations that are known to be frequented by traffickers on the look-out for victims.  Where safe to do so, children are returned to their families or placed in a safe environment, where they have access to various forms of support, have every opportunity to receive an education & training, empowering them to forge a happy and fulfilling future for themselves.

Rescue: Our qualified rescue agents work with local authorities, the AFP and FBI to gather intelligence and conduct raids on identified businesses that offer children for sex.  Alleged perpetrators are arrested, brought to trial and, if found guilty, will spend many years behind bars.  Their businesses closed down.  Read more.

Aftercare: At Destiny Rescue, our aftercare goal is to equip and empower every child we rescue with an education and the tools necessary to safeguard themselves and their families from future exploitation. We aim to empower each child to thrive and grow towards becoming contributing members of their community, with the support of their family wherever possible. As we have come alongside each child we have learned that healing and restoration can take place in many different ways and as a result, our programs are tailored to meet the individual needs of each child in their local context.

Community Education at Home:  Many of our team members are sought-after speakers who present at schools, service clubs, churches and conferences on topics such as human/child trafficking, the link between pornography and human trafficking, child protection and more.  To book a speaker, please call 1300 738 761

Our Beneficiaries

Destiny Rescue assists thousands of children in 7 countries who are at risk of or are exposed to trafficking and sexual exploitation. We also assist many of the children’s families and their communities.

Projects in Progress

Destiny Rescue operates in six S.E. Asian countries and one Caribbean location, known as major world hotspots for trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children.  We have offices in Australia, in the USA and New Zealand who work to fund facilities and operations in our project countries.  Over 84% of funds raised go directly to our projects.
