About the Role
We are an Australian not for profit that creates meaningful experiences to raise funds, educate and empower future generations to end human trafficking and exploitation.
PROJECT FUTURES (PF) has grown by appealing to, and mobilising a largely young professionals audience to engage in social activities for purpose. It has grown from a voluntarily run organisation to one that employs full time staff whose primary role is to empower people to take action and fundraise for meaningful change.
Funds generated support four established projects within the Asia-Pacific region that help transform and restore the lives of victims, survivors and those at-risk of human trafficking, slavery and exploitation. To date PROJECT FUTURES has raised over 4.4 millions dollars and supported five projects across three countries.
PROJECT FUTURES has reached an exciting stage of growth. Our goal is to create long term, sustainable revenue streams so that our current and future Impact Partners can concentrate more time and resources on providing quality client outcomes, while we use our skills and expertise to alleviate the burden of cost.
