I have some very exciting news for you this week.
Over the coming months, The Human, Earth Project will be going further than ever before.
Sisters For Sale, our feature-length documentary exploring the complex realities of human trafficking, will be an incredibly powerful tool in the battle against human trafficking.
The battle itself, however, can only be fought on the ground, and the key is education.
In 2014, I spent a great deal of time with Ethos, a Sapa-based social enterprise doing fantastic work amongst the local communities of northern Vietnam.
Ethos and I began discussing the development of a human trafficking prevention program amongst high-risk villages of northern Vietnam, to stop the trafficking of young women and girls.
Our plans were delayed due to a lack of funding, and a series of malicious attacks against Ethos, myself and our work in Vietnam.
I’m very excited to announce that the program is now becoming a reality.
I’ll be contributing the knowledge I’ve gathered over the past 3.5 years, a tailor-made educational film, and part of the funds from our upcoming fundraising campaign, while Ethos will be running the program on the ground.
Over the past week, I’ve been connecting with various individuals and organisations who will be helping to promote our fundraising campaign, which launches early next month.
We’ve also put together some fantastic rewards and giveaways to encourage all of you to share and contribute.
I’ll be releasing more details on our prevention program, and the fundraising campaign, very soon. Subscribe here to keep up with all the latest news, if you haven’t already.
Thanks to Johanna Leiner – a good friend and a great supporter of my work – the Sisters For Sale trailer is now available in German.
If German is your first language, help us raise awareness of human trafficking by sharing the trailer with your friends.
