It is estimated that around 600,000 to 800,000 men, women, and children are trafficked every year. Of this, 50% are young children who are mostly forced into the commercial sex trade, but despite these alarming numbers, which are increasing daily, human trafficking is not discussed much. A permanent solution has yet to be found, and it has been left up to committed individuals to join fight the fight against human trafficking. The latest to join the battle is renowned real estate developer, Nathan Garber.
Nathan has started a foundation, www.NRGElevationFoundation.org, focused on ending human trafficking and shedding more light on this growing national epidemic. He and his team hope to help more people and lower the ever-increasing number of human trafficking cases as they encourage others to take action.
Human trafficking is not discussed as much as it should be, especially on mainstream media and social platforms. These are great channels to stop the perpetrators as society becomes interconnected in almost every corner of the world. As more awareness is raised about human trafficking and modern-day slavery, Nathan and his team hope to rally more people and continue the talk on human trafficking.
Nathan is advocating anti-trafficking policies and strengthening child protection systems while educating children and young people on how to recognize traffickers’ recruitment tactics and other safety measures. He is using his social platforms to drive these talks as he supports and encourages young children, single mothers, and veterans.
“I’ve always thought this is egregious to exploit children and people in any way. I feel like it’s something that hasn’t been talked about enough. We spend so much money on other things but we aren’t rescuing and protecting children from all these atrocities.” explains Nathan.
Nathan Garber has developed a real estate team/family where he’s molded his kids into better leaders by teaching them what real estate is all about.Nathan Garber’s foundation is also giving a voice to human trafficking victims. The foundation is creating a safe space that will listen to their story and show them that they are not alone. Garber’s team operates with virtually no administrative costs because they work directly with people in need.
“Human trafficking is a huge violation of human rights, and it is quite unfortunate that some people find it right to hold others captive and force them to work against their will. This is someone’s daughter, son, close friend, mother, father, brother, or uncle who is forcefully taken from their home, and with each day, the number of those trafficked is growing. Our foundation aims to help these victims and walk with them on this journey as we all fight to end human trafficking,” says Nathan.
As he starts this new chapter, he notes that his goal is to build a safe community where everyone will feel at home.
While putting an end to human trafficking is not going to be that easy, as Nathan Garber shows us through his foundation, it all starts with you. Each and every one of us is responsible for the advancement of our race, and the people who take advantage of innocent human beings who can’t fight back should be put to justice.
