Earlier this week, while on The Planet D, I came across an article called Kidnapped in Vietnam – A Story of Human Trafficking. This was the first time I heard of the Human Earth Project but not about the global issue of human trafficking. I first became aware and concerned about human trafficking while in high school and wrote a few essays about it. But having this article intrigue me about the documentary in the making, I looked into more about the Human Earth Project.
I personally believe this is a great project and took it upon myself to do my little part in sharing it with my readers. Instead of me sitting here trying to explain what this is all about, take a look at this video:
On Nomadic Meg, I like to focus on fun adventures and living abroad. But human trafficking is a serious issue that needs to be known and addressed. The first steps to solving this problem is by making sure people are aware that it exists. I believe this documentary could be a great way to inform people and hopefully help find the missing.
Human trafficking is a global problem. There isn’t a single country that is not a part of this between countries of origin, destination, and moved through. Humans are not property yet are treated as such all the time.
The Human Earth Project currently has an Indiegogo campaign going on (for only a few more days!). Check it out and help if you can: Kidnapped in Vietnam – The Human Earth Project.
If you want to learn more about human trafficking, I’d recommend you read “The Natashas: The New Global Sex Trade” by Victor Malarek. This is the book I read in high school that really opened my eyes to this issue and made me passionate about helping stop human trafficking. I purchased my copy of The Natashas: The New Global Sex Trade from Amazon.
I post about projects like this documentary that other people are doing on Facebook all the time. Others I’ve mentioned are The Global Sunrise Project and Project 562. Like my Facebook page to find out about other projects that I think you should support since I don’t always make full blog posts like this one.
