My mission is to rescue, my dream is that one day I won’t have to.
Adam Whittington is the founder and volunteer CEO of Project Rescue Children. Adam receives no income or any benefits in his role as CEO.
After serving as a soldier in the Australian Army and Police Officer in London, Adam was hired privately in investigations worldwide dealing with finding and recovering kidnapped children. That was the start of his passion to end child trafficking and exploitation.
His dream was to start a charity that was different, that would concentrate more on the ground, on the frontline actually making a difference to children's lives, instead of counting statistics. That was the birth of Project Rescue Children.
Adam and his team often go undercover acting as traffickers or paedophiles putting their lives at risk, in order to rescue children from child trafficking and exploitation in hostile locations. All operations are in cooperation with local authorities. It's vital operations are carried out lawfully, in order to gather evidence to assist law enforcement with prosecution of the perpetrators.

What they say
Adam is a very dedicated man who has one of the most amazing passions and determinations to help children. I have worked with Adam in Mombasa Kenya. The way he interacts with children and members of the public including authorities is exceptional. Adam has also assisted TRACE KENYA with vital equipment to allow us to do our job. We recently partnered with Adam's charity Project Rescue Children to introduce a training program for hotel staff in Mombasa educating the staff on child trafficking and exploitation.
