from the lips of survivors
We are incredibly fortunate to be able to welcome three inspiring women who will be travelling from Cambodia to Australia in March to support the work of PROJECT FUTURES. Each of these women have their own stories of survival, having experienced extreme abuse at the hands of men who believed it their right.
They will be in Australia to help us celebrate International Women’s Day and lend their voices to the Stella Fella campaign happening in March. They will be available to speak at local events in Sydney from the 4-8 March 2019. If you would like to request their presence at one of your events, school or workplace on these dates, please get in touch or complete the request form above.
meet our incredible SPEAKERS
Please note, our special guest speakers from Cambodia will only be available during the week of International Women’s Day (4-8 March). If this does not suit your timings, a member of the PROJECT FUTURES team, (or our Stella Fella Ambassador, Nick Kenny) will be available throughout the month of March to support your event and share their experiences.
MEN WHO LEND THEIR VOICE TO OURS
MEET OUR CELEBRITY AMBASSADOR
ABOUT NICK KENNY
Nick is an ex-professional Rugby League footballer who enjoyed a nine year career playing for the Brisbane Broncos before retiring in 2011 to focus on growing his physiotherapy business.
Nick has been an Ambassador for PROJECT FUTURES since 2012 and a perennial challenger; having participated in four PROJECT FUTURES’ led international adventures, both joined and organised two local physical challenges and raised in excess of $100,000 for victims of sex trafficking and violence.
As a professional football player, he has seen how the game he loves has been tainted by negative media surrounding some players, which has ultimately affected the sport’s reputation.
His goal is to lead by example, taking action against issues of exploitation and violence against women and help showcase the many positive male role models within this sport and community.
At every event where a speaker is requested, a member of the PROJECT FUTURES team will be available as well.
MEET OUR SCHOOLS PARTNERSHIP OFFICER, REBEKAH SMITH
Bek joined PROJECT FUTURES in 2018 as an intern before taking on the title of “challenger”, cycling 400km across Cambodia alongside staff and students from Loreto Normanhurst in July . In her role as Schools Partnership Officer, she is able to use her personal experience visiting AFESIP Cambodia, as well as her ethical, social and professional understanding of Southeast Asia to build points of connection with the issue of sex trafficking for students across the country.
Her insight enables PROJECT FUTURES’ work to remain culturally sensitive and relative to the specific needs of Southeast Asian countries, whilst providing valued contribution to advocacy and fundraising goals to support and empower survivors of sex trafficking.
