Where does my money go?
We are grateful for your generosity and promise to use your donation in the most effective way possible. All donations designated for specific funds will be applied to those projects and to administering the gifts. At least 75 percent of your designated gift will go to programs that defend kids. Gifts that cannot be used for a particular project, due to over or under-funding, will be directed to Destiny Rescue’s most urgent needs. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that Destiny Rescue has control over the use of all donated funds.

How can I become involved?
The main ways we would love your help and expertise is through donating, advocacy, and fundraising. By donating, you are empowering us to bring rescue and essential resources to those in need. By sharing information and resources about Destiny Rescue, you are helping to spread awareness and be part of the movement that is taking action to put an end to child trafficking. Find out more information about how you can host your own fundraiser.
How do I become a volunteer?
Currently we do not have volunteer positions available within Australia. At the moment, we are taking Expression of Interest applications and assessing suitability for any future roles that might become available within our international team. Our international roles are currently volunteer positions that require a two year commitment, only on the rare occasion will we offer short term opportunities. This commitment is due to the fact training, learning the role, and becoming familiar with a new culture takes time. This process is funded by the volunteer.
How do I become a Rescue Agent? What qualifications do I need?
Becoming a Rescue Agent is only one of many roles within our volunteering teams. Our Rescue Agents go through a specific vetting and training process and come with many different skills sets and backgrounds. Training varies based on location and team. It is specific to the situations our agents will encounter and the skills they will need to employ for rescue. We take people from various backgrounds; no specific qualifications are necessary. But the right character and a willingness to learn are essential. Experience managing projects or people is very helpful, as well as previous cross-cultural experience. In the meantime, we would recommend researching more into the current issue of human trafficking and child exploitation and getting familiar with Destiny Rescue and how we operate.
