    I came across your charity after searching on australiancharityguide.com


    And I was wondering if you would like to partner up?


    Basically what we do is make animated videos that are designed to promote your service online and increase your website conversion rate.


    So I wanted to offer you a 30 second explainer video for your charity for just $197. (including script/voiceover)


    All I ask in return is a quick testimonial if you like the video!


    If you are interested in this offer, you can find out more or get started at www.30secondexplainervideos.com/explainer


    Or you can shoot me a quick email if you had any questions!


    Cheers,

    Good evening,


    My name is Rebecca Conole and I am a final year Bachelor of Social Work (Honours) at the University of South Australia. I am conducting my Honours Thesis on the effects of Human Trafficking on women. I am looking for information and/or personal stories from people whom have survived human trafficking in particular women from Afghanistan and Syria but also any other areas and regions across the world.


    I was wondering if this was something your organisation could assist me with or know of an organisation or group that could assist me?


    Thank you for your time,


    Kind Regards,


    Rebecca Conole

    Hello,


    I am currently living in Melbourne Australia and I am researching different safe homes or rehabilitation homes regarding victims of sexual exploitation. I was interesting in hearing more about your program and if there are any internship opportunities.


    I am currently a student at Moody Bible Institute located in Chicago, IL and am seeking to complete my internship while abroad. I was previously in Bangkok, Thailand working with NightLight.


    Please let me know of any opportunities that may be possible.


    Cheers,

    Hi Kate

    My name is Garry I married an ex prostitute at 56 years of age she was 53

    she told me she had stopped she was on a disability pension , I fell in love with her cared for her only to find out she was still prostertuting .

    we split febuary this year she told the police so many increadable lies they believed and removed me from my house

    4 months of court apperances and we settled I got my house back paid her a settlement and now shes prostituting again.

    it breaks my heart to see her do this , but all she does is lie lie and deceipt people

    I am all for your cause but what do you do with con woman like my wife Julie

    I watched your interviews and totally agree with you, I think it should be banned and if continued then , the buyer if you can call the scum that should be charged as well as the prostitute .


    keep up the goog work Kate

    Australia are lucky we have people like you that care


    Cheers

    Dear Project Respect Team

    my colleague James Morton and I ( both of us lapsed lawyers) have written nine books on organised crime – from Gangland Australia 2007 to Bent: Australia’s Crooked Cops 2016. Our Publisher is MUP. We are currently researching our next book which will include a chapter on people trafficking. Usually we work from court cases, but your site and links have also proved useful. I note from the cases that most offenders in the sex trafficking realm are for a large part ‘mom and pop’ teams or a woman who was herself trafficked at an earlier stage. We wonder if behind those small operators there are larger organisations in Australia, Thailand or elsewhere which are keeping the supply wheels turning. I feel sure where there’s a buck to be made there are a group of men taking a cut. In Europe for instance the Albanians have made a name for themselves in this area.


    Do you think there is someone we could talk to about this? My colleague James will be in Australia in February and we both feel it would be a great help if we were able to talk to someone from your organisation.

    Hi there,


    I am just emailing ask a question. I am doing my honours at university at the moment and my honours topic is on sex trafficking. I was wanting to ask if I can use your company as a reference point in my project. I am making an animation to raise awareness for sex trafficking and I want to put a link to your website at the end of it. I was wondering if this would be ok. If so that would be greatly appreciated.

    Dear Cindy,

    This is not a question, but a comment I wish to convey to you.

    Last night I heard Gillian Triggs speak at the Samuel Alexander Lecture at Wesley College. As expected, she spoke extremely well. Afterwards I asked her about her views on the state of Trafficking of Women within the sex industry here. She said it was increasing, but there does not appear to be the political will to address it effectively. She made the point that frequently, certainly in Pakistan & Nepal, it is about trafficking of GIRLS rather than of women as in these countries it pertains to girls around 15 years of age.

    Kind regards,

    Margaret Farmer – one of your donors.

    Hello ProjectRespect

    I am a student filmmaker from JMC Academy in South Melbourne. I am currently in the process of making a documentary that focuses on how women working in the sex industry are effected and the emotional turmoil they go through. I am looking for a woman or women to interview for my project who can give me first hand accounts of their experiences. The film would only be used for educational purposes and would not be released publicly unless permission is given by the women. It is paramount that I complete these interviews before the end of July. I am very passionate about telling these women’s stories and exposing the truth about the sex industry in a sensitive and compassionate manner. I look forward to hearing back from you soon. Any response would be greatly appreciated.

    Our Faith Response Committee (of Slave Free Madison) is currently working on supplying Dignity Bags to you for use by the police department. One of our members, Sally Jones, has been in contact with you about this. When planning clothing that would go into these bags, there was a question about your clothes closet. I think you have one? If so, could appropriate clothing be supplied in the bag from you, or would you prefer that we try to have bags, each with a different size of clothing? Or, as part of our project, should we supply clothing in various sizes just to keep at Project Respect, specifically for those bags, that you could add to the bags prior to delivery? Would appreciate your thoughts on how we can best do this. Thanks.

    Hi there,

    My name is David Wilkinson, im studying social work at Usyd and am about to start a policy briefing paper for a Uni assignment. I’m very interested in human trafficking but am unsure how it fares under current policy in Australia.


    Are there any ways in which Australia’s current policy does not effectively address human trafficking in Australia?


    Or what are the ways that victims of trafficking fall through the cracks of policy?


    Your response would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hi there,


    I was just enquiring as to whether you had any volunteering opportunities or if you knew of any women’s organisation that did? I am in my fourth year of Social Work at RMIT and would really like to get involved in this area of working with women. I’ve also just completed a 70 day placement at MIND Australia, supporting clients with mental health issues at a residential service.
    Let me know if you can point me in the right direction.

    Hi Project Respect,


    My name is Sharon Beel and I am heading up a charity whose aim is to offer women in the sex industry of Australia the support they need to exit the industry and become equipped for a life of independence and strength. We hope to help women from multicultural backgrounds and especially those who are not Australian residents. (You know well that many of these women are vulnerable to trafficking and abuse.) At this point we are at the information gathering stage of the project. Obviously we need to know exactly what we are facing and to be well equipped and supported to achieve such an aim.


    I am writing to you because I hope you may be able to help me with visa information about these women. Do you have access to any statistics about these women and what their visa statuses typically are? Even if you might have anonymous anecdotal facts about a few women, this will help us. Here are the questions we need answered, as many as you are able:


    1. What visa did they enter the country on (unlawful entrants too)


    2. When/where issued


    3. When expired


    4. Conditions on the visa (students typically have at least condition 8503)


    5. What visa conditions have not been complied with (if any)


    If you are not able to help us with any of this sort of information, would you know where we might be able to access it?


    Kind Regards,


    Sharon Beel

    Dear Project Respect,


    My name is Emma Hutchinson and I am currently a second year International Studies student at RMIT University. This semester, I am completing my first research project where I am required to conduct an interview with an industry professional in a field that interests me. I am extremely interested in the empowerment of women and after some research, I came across your website. The work that your organisation does is truly admirable and the way in which you treat these women with respect and no judgement no matter what situation they are in makes me curious to find out more about how you operate.


    I am emailing to ask if there was anyone within this organisation who can generously donate just 20 to 30 minutes of their time to answer a few of my questions regarding their work and discuss the issues and stigmas surrounding human trafficking with me. I would also appreciate discussing their thoughts about the future of organisations helping those who are or have been a part of human trafficking.


    I understand that many of you will be busy with your work, so I will be happy to work around your timetable.


    If I were allowed this opportunity, I would feel extremely privileged and be very appreciative.


    Yours Sincerely,


    Emma Hutchinson

    Good evening,

    My name is Eloise Dunford and I am writing a piece for Melbourne University’s Farrago magazine regarding pornography, sex-work and the line between sexual empowerment and sexual exploitation. I am in contact with one sex-worker who is empowered by her work, but I truly believe that is not the case for the majority of women in the industry.

    To make the article more valid, I am looking to quote a former sex-worker for who empowerment was not part of their job. I understand this is a sensitive and for some, deeply traumatising topic and so I was wondering if perhaps someone within your organisation could send me a quote or two with your stance on sex-work and what it is like for the majority of women in the industry, based on the work you do. Alternatively, if possible, a quote from a former worker themselves would be fantastic. I think it is important for their voices to be heard and I hope my article can help educate the community on the potentially abusive, discriminatory and dangerous sex industry. I am also very interested in volunteering as I am passionate about women’s safety, rights and autonomy.

    Thank you,

    Eloise
