1. How did the All One Foundation begin? Three years ago, Dr Lynelle Kerr came across a photo of a young Cambodian girl in a magazine, she had collapsed on the ground and was screaming in terror, desperately clutching a woman’s leg. The caption identified her as a nine-year-old girl rescued from the sex trade, who was begging not to return. The picture was burnt into Dr. Kerr’s memory and haunted her relentlessly, before she decided to do something to directly help the children in the position of the young girl in the magazine. She established the All One Foundation, which was registered in Singapore on May 18th 2007.

2. Who is Dr. Lynelle Kerr? Dr Lynelle Kerr is the founder of the All One Foundation and Director of Innate Pte Ltd. She is a Doctor of Chiropractic and specializes in a light touch form of Chiropractic which activates the body’s innate ability to heal and correct itself, and which the All One Foundation provides to children rescued from the sex trade. Dr Kerr has been in private practice, for over 18 years and established her company Innate in Singapore in 2001. She was awarded the XL Global Social Entrepreneur of the year award in 2006.

3. What does the All One Foundation do? All One provides professional healing support for children in Asia who have been rescued from the sex trade, by sponsoring doctors to care for them on a long-term basis. All One practitioners use a specialized and light-touch form of Chiropractic, which activates the body’s innate ability to heal and correct itself. The practitioners help the rescued children to recover physically mentally and emotionally, so that they can enjoy a happy and productive life.

4. Why do children rescued from the sex trade need help? Besides needing a safe place to live, many of the children rescued from the sex trade have suffered extreme abuse and violence and have only very limited resources available to help them. The severe trauma experienced usually affects them for life and unless the energetic memory of the abuse is released from the nervous system, it is difficult for them to recover and enjoy life again.

5. What is the All One motto and what does it mean? The All One motto is: ‘We are all meant to shine’, which is derived from the famous quote by American writer Marianna Williamson, in her book ‘Return to Love’… “Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us… We are all meant to shine… as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” The All One Foundation is dedicated to helping children rescued from the sex trade, to heal and experience their greatness - allowing them to shine as the stars they were born to be.

6. How is the All One Foundation different from other charitable organizations? All One is permanently and fundamentally transforming the lives of countless children. Unlike most charitable organizations, we are not dependent on fund raising activities and rely instead on sponsorship from corporations and individuals. As a small organization, all funds we receive go directly to helping the children rather than administration.

7. Where is the All One Foundation operating? We are currently operating in Cambodia and will have Doctors permanently based throughout Asia in countries such as Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia and India. We will create a global model for the All One Foundation that is a win-win for everyone including: governments and local communities, the corporations and individuals that sponsor us, the practitioners and doctors that work for us, and of course the children.

8. What will the future bring for the All One Foundation? Sustainability of the foundation and empowerment of the children are our focus. Through partnerships with organizations that can teach the children basic professional skills, such as English, computer/IT, we will support their long term welfare, providing them with a brighter and economically more viable future, than they would have had otherwise. Ultimately… we would like the future to bring the end of child exploitation in the sex trade.
