Lydia also shared the lessons she’s learned from her experience in sustainable volunteering and teamwork during crisis management. Lydia provided incredible insight into the importance of investing in yourself and your support network as well as ongoing, evolving self-reflection.

Podcast Episode #14: Glen Hulley

Glen Hulley is the Founder and CEO of Project Karma, a not-for-profit charity with the mission “to fight child sexual exploitation – whenever, by whoever and wherever it occurs”.  Glen previously spent 13 years in the Victorian police force in both uniformed and covert capacities before an experience whilst on holiday in Cambodia incited him to sell everything he owned to form Project Karma.

Globally the market for the sexual exploitation of children stands at around USD $36 billion, involving over 2 million children, and is growing at an estimated 20% per year. Child exploitation is an issue that remains prevalent around the world in many forms, allowed to continue in the undercurrent of society whilst the general populace remains unaware, to the detriment and life-long impact of such vulnerable children.
