Destiny Rescue has established a rescue presence in Burma, a country where children are sourced for trafficking into the sex-trade. We need to build on this foundation and establish a Rescue Home and Employment Center, so that we can empower rescued children into hopeful and safe futures.
The goal of our Burma Sewing & Job Creation Center is simple: to provide rescued young people with training and employment to help ensure that they can make a living wage as they step into a new future. The end product will be profound: young people who are no longer at risk of re-entering the sex-trade; kids who have the skills to create a safe and sustainable future for themselves and their families; young women who will break the poverty cycle and change the futures of generations to come. Please help us make this project a reality and see lives transformed.
Our rescue work in Laos continues to grow and as we rescue more and more children, it is vital that we provide all rescued young people with the skills that will ensure a safe future for them. We are planning to set up a sewing training and job creation center in Laos to help meet this need.
With an estimated annual income per capita of $460 USD, Laos is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. 71 percent of its population live on less than $2 USD a day, and 23 percent on less than $1 USD a day. Destiny Rescue is determined to help rescue children from prostitution and poverty in Laos and part of our strategy is the establishment of a Jewelry Training and Job Creation Center. This project will change lives.
We need to set up training opportunities for the at-risk boys in our Thailand Boys Home. By providing training in specific trades, like construction, we help them to break the poverty cycle that has entrapped their families, often for generations.
