Bringing Light to the Dark Web

Countries involved:
United States of America

The Fund is supporting Thorn’s Bringing Light to the Dark Web project, a global initiative that will use a new tool to help law enforcement identify children who are victims of online child sexual exploitation and abuse. Thorn helps gather the most important pieces of information related to child sexual abuse material online to support law enforcement investigations. By expanding the initiative’s reach, Thorn hopes to achieve the following goals:

    • Remove more children, faster, from abusive situations
    • Reduce the time it takes to identify new child sexual abuse material
    • Reduce the investigative time required to identify a child in abuse material
    • Foster collaboration among law enforcement worldwide

To date, Thorn has helped law enforcement in over 55 countries find over 800 children whose abuse material has appeared online.

Grant timeline:
April 2018 – April 2021
