With general oversight over rescue, restoration and reintegration efforts throughout this relatively large southeast Asian country, the Country Manager must be able to travel the country in search of safe-housing locations for the girls we rescue from sexual exploitation and trafficking in Myanmar. He also must be able to search out areas where vocational training and potential job opportunities are available.
In Cambodia, rescue teams go out into the night, with a plan to seek underage prisoners in commercial sex establishments. Their work requires them to ride dependable motorbikes in order to accomplish their work efficiently, expeditiously, and with flexibility when the need arises. Motorbikes offer a cost-effective means of transportation in order for them to do their work.
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 Myanmar (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.
