In this episode of YS Up Governance and Boards Podcast, 3YS Owls Governance Consultants, Ainslie Cunningham and Deb Anderson explore with Marc Nuss, the amazing work of Destiny Rescue who save children from child exploitation and the undercover work involved in rescuing and then counselling, educating and rehabilitating those children so that they can choose their own.
We’ve created a beauty school where we train the girls that have been rescued to become beauticians…We provide them with start up kits to enable them to set up their own businesses.
The after care is so important - the rescue is one part, but what you do with them after that is so vitally important for their future and so that is the essence of us, why we’re called Destiny Rescue.
Marc is a Partnership Manager for Destiny Rescue.
Marc has carried a deep interest and compassion for the underprivileged and vulnerable for most of his life. Having three daughters of his own, and experiencing first hand the plight of young women caught in human trafficking, he is passionate about his role in Destiny Rescue and is determined to make a difference.
Destiny Rescue is a Not-for-Profit organisation started in Australia over 18 years ago, and is dedicated to fighting the trafficking and exploitation of children in seven nations. Their highly trained agents run covert and raid rescue operations, day and night to locate and rescue children.
With the ongoing support of generous donors, Destiny Rescue has successfully liberated over 5,200 individual victims of human trafficking.
Their tireless work has also helped prevent hundreds of children from exploitation through various local community prevention programs and delivered justice and care for those who have been rescued. Destiny Rescue accept donations.
