KEY POINTS

“Children are the now and the future. In fact, this world is not for us. We have borrowed it from our children. We are the custodians and when the time comes, we should hand it over to them better than we borrowed it. Of importance is that we must take care of these children so that they take care of the future,” said Adam, the CEO, and Founder of Project Rescue Children.

KEY TAKEAWAYS


Project Rescue Children (PRC) has been like a shining star, a hope to the hopeless, and a guide to a better future for children within and outside Kenya. The organization, despite the numerous challenges, including opposition from corrupt Kenyan authorities, has managed to rescue, educate and give hope to many children in particular in West Kenya.


Rape is a very sensitive subject. In most cases, we only talk about it in hushed tones. It is like a taboo yet a monster that leaves permanent scars in the hearts and lives of the victims. Sometimes we only hear about them in the news and a deafening silence thereafter.

Most societies in Kenya often hide rapists, especially if the perpetrator is a close family member. They say it is a way to hold the family together, hide the shame, and act as if nothing ever happened. But they rarely put in mind the future and the dreams of the victim.

Project Rescue Children (PRC) has been like a shining star, a hope to the hopeless, and a guide to a better future for children within and outside Kenya. The organization, despite the numerous challenges, including opposition from corrupt Kenyan authorities, has managed to rescue, educate and give hope to many children in particular in West Kenya. It is clear PRC is not deterred and will not tolerate being bullied or harassed by corrupt officials or media.

During the month, PRC rescued a 7-year-old girl, Mary, who was horribly raped and abandoned by a neighbor while her mother went to gather water down at the watering hole. PRC took her to the hospital, paid the medical bills, rented a new apartment, bought new furniture, paid for her new private school, bought her new uniforms, and are paying for her whole living, food bills, for her and her 2 siblings and widowed mother. PRC is taking care of Mary’s rehabilitation.

“She is also in our child trafficking and exploitation village program with other abused kids where is receiving rehabilitation and support. We support her fully financially and she now has four international sponsors as the people following PRC were touched and saddened by her story,” added Adam.

Adam is the founder and volunteer CEO of Project Rescue Children. He receives no income or any benefits in his role as CEO. He spent four years in the Australian Army as an Infantry soldier. After leaving the military he was hired privately in investigations across the world. He was the lead investigator in the Internationally covered kidnapping and murder of a British girl, Lucie Blackman in Tokyo, Japan. He featured in the best-selling nonfiction book, ‘People Who Eat Darkness’ written about the horrible case.

He then served in the Metropolitan Police Force in London, United Kingdom as a police officer. Adam was the recipient of two commendations awarded by the Police Division Commander. One for outstanding police work and dedication to helping community members and the other commendation for rescuing a family of three generations from inside their burning vehicle. Adam has worked every type of case imaginable in the fight to dismantle child trafficking rings, kidnappers, and child predators, across the globe.

“We are expanding in countries that are forgotten and have a wonderful group of volunteers who are dedicated to helping children. We have recently made significant gains in child trafficking and exploitation in the Gambia where we are now a registered not-for-profit charity foundation.  We have officially partnered with the Gambia police force and Immigration and Tourism board who have welcomed our help fighting Western pedophiles. We rescue children from immediate threats or high-risk situations by working with the local government and the police. We provide a safe place for them to receive immediate health check-ups, protection, and trauma-informed care. We rescue children from danger on the streets, trafficking, abuse, and child labor. We are committed to restoring and empowering the rights of every child. ​This is one conversation the world is not having. The only way to combat child trafficking is to get the message out, raise awareness, and to educate the nation. We are expanding into the UK, USA, and also Ukraine where we have carried out two humanitarian aid campaigns delivering food and sanitary items to the people of Ukraine, he said.

PRC sponsors fresh-cooked meals each day for over 65 kids in one school in West Kenya and provides them with educational material. The organization has also apprehended and extradited many pedophiles in cooperation with Kenyan village police. On the East coast of Mombasa, PRC fully funded a hotel education day program to teach hotel staff about child trafficking and exploitation.

They have also introduced the period pad campaign that includes teaching girls how to make their own reusable period pads so they don’t have to have pedophiles pay for period pads in exchange for sex or sexual favors, which often results in child pregnancy.

“We have fully funded multiple jobs and extradition of sex offenders back to the village. We hire cars and petrol for the police. If we don’t, the child rapists police are looking for will never be prosecuted. We have also donated phones and laptops to the village
