March 2017 – Thorn, digital defenders of children
The donation of March 2017 goes to:
Thorn partners with nonprofits and academic institutions to gather new insights into the role technology plays in child sex trafficking, the creation and proliferation of child pornography, and the normalisation of child sexual exploitation. They create and support tech initiatives that disrupt predatory behaviour and work to make the internet a more hostile environment for those who seek to exploit children, recruiting the brightest minds in technology to solve specific problems.
Thorn works with a group of technology partners who serve the organisation as members of the Technology Task Force. The goal of the program includes developing technological barriers and initiatives to ensure the safety of children online and deter sexual predators on the Internet.
Their motto is: We are digital defenders of children
