Our Team

Diligent & Dedicated

‘The Human, Earth Project’ was founded by Ben Randall, an Australian activist and award-winning documentary filmmaker.

Since 2013, dozens of people from across the world have assisted with the project. Core team members have included John Bardos, Giang Thi Chan, Claire Harris, Jeppe Hildebrandt, Marinho, Barry O’Kane, Nick Randall, Simone, and Ben Warren.

We have received guidance and support from numerous anti-trafficking organisations, most notably Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation and Alliance Anti-Trafic.
