Sitting in a lively café, Bruce, Destiny Rescue’s country manager in the Philippines, passionately described the key attributes his team of rescue agents possess. Bruce’s commitment to excellence and integrity requires agents to have an impressive resume paired with exceptional character.

Being a rescue agent in the Philippines requires a vast array of skills. All agents undergo a rigorous application and training process to ensure they can fulfill the role’s demands.

Although they all met the challenging requirements, the rescue agents are diverse and bring various strengths and weaknesses to the team. “You don’t have to be good at everything,” Bruce said. Working together, agents are stronger and ultimately more effective in rescuing children.


Agents are encouraged and held accountable through their teammates, significant others and continuously rolling footage of their operations. “We’ve always got hidden cameras. We’ve got eyes on us all the time,” Bruce shared.

The past
When asked about the screening process for agents, Bruce answered, “There are a lot of scrutinies that are involved.” In addition to due diligence such as government background checks and personal references, our teams research each potential agent’s past to verify their character and honesty.

It can even be as deep as speaking to their neighbors and going way back and finding their high school classmates… it can get pretty intense,” Bruce shared.

The body
All agents in the Philippines receive training in self-defense and social awareness techniques. They are prepared to protect themselves and de-escalate situations as necessary. “We don’t encourage any of our operatives to engage in any altercation or fighting. If anything, you back away,” Bruce said.
