MORE ABOUT THE Ashleigh S. Chapman EPISODE:
Welcome to episode 286 of DREAM THINK DO! We’re digging into a wildly important subject today, and I’ll be the first to admit… it’s a heavier subject.
But… as you know with dream think do… we don’t shy away from important topics… especially if we can help you to see some places where you can be making a difference. AND… if we can share an inspiring story.
In this episode… we get to do both.
The topic is ending human trafficking in our generation.
The story is of one person who decided that even though she’s just one person… she thought she’d try to make a difference right where she was at. And as you’ll learn… she started small and now she’s helping whole countries on initiatives to stop human trafficking. It’s an amazing interview and I think you’re going to love it.
By the way, while more and more people are becoming aware of the presence of human trafficking, very few understand it. Therefore, very few know how to stop it. Get these statistics:
- Human trafficking is a $150 billion-a-year industry
- Sadly… it’s one of the world’s fastest growing criminal enterprises
- It happens closer to home than one would imagine, affecting more than 40 million people worldwide
- That means human trafficking impacts 1 in every 200 people
Whether you’ve got a passion for helping to end human trafficking… or like our guest… you might feel called to take on a challenge that seems insurmountable… I’m betting today’s episode will inspire you to start small… and to keep moving forward on that dream to make a difference!
