Our Story

Where we began and where we are going

Founded in 2001, Destiny Rescue’s story began with founder and international president Tony Kirwan.

Tony overheard about a man in Thailand who was once invited to have sex with children.

“When I heard this story it really hit me and I knew I had to do something,” Tony says. “It was at this point, I believe God put the vision of Destiny Rescue in my heart.”

Today, Destiny Rescue’s work has grown into a worldwide organisation dedicated to rescuing children from sexual exploitation and trafficking and helping them stay free. We serve to help amplify the voices of both those who are enslaved and have been freed from abuse.

I dream of a time when children can go to bed to sleep,
not to work.


Destiny Rescue’s mission is to rescue kids from sexual exploitation and human trafficking and to help them stay free.

We do this through our rescue operations and reintegration programs. We are active in countries where the need to save is great. Because of our committed supporters, our rescue and reintegration staff are bringing freedom, hope and healing to children around the clock – day and night!

Destiny Rescue’s vision is to play a leading role in ending the sexual exploitation and trafficking of children in our lifetime.

We hold true to this vision and will continue to grow our programs, build strong partnerships, and step into new countries to extend freedom and hope to exploited children across the world.
