Theresa is a missionary and a passionate and gifted speaker
For nearly 20 years Theresa Daley worked in social services as a Case Manager, Domestic Violence Counselor and rape prevention specialist. She facilitated domestic violence recovery groups in women’s shelters and drop in centers. In 2005 she worked as a sexual assault prevention coordinator both responding to sexual assault cases and providing prevention eduction. In 2005 she received a grant for $200,000 from the Department of Justice to Administer a program to end violent crimes against women on college campuses.
In 2010, having worked extensively in the field in both response and prevention, she realized that while great progress had taken place in North America regarding violence against women, much of the world still reeled from the devastation of gender based violence. She concluded that her experience and education would be best utilized in the global arena.
After three years of mission work in 9 nations she was led to launch East Africa Women’s Rescue Center based in Uganda where the rate of defilement of women is at 68%. The mission of this ministry is to change a culture that is oppressive, punitive and violent towards women and girls through education, resources and collaboration throughout East Africa.
