Our Team

Our Team

‘The Human, Earth Project’ was founded by Ben Randall, an Australian activist, award-winning author, and award-winning documentary filmmaker. Originally planned as a six-month project, ‘The Human, Earth Project’ has now been operating on a non-profit basis for over a decade.

Since 2013, many people from across the world have assisted with the project. We have received guidance and support from numerous other counter-trafficking organisations, most notably Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation.
