Harnessing Technology for Good - 6Degree.org

On 23 June 2015, IOM and Microsoft launched 6Degree.org, the world’s first crowdfunding portal that enables the public to directly support the voluntary return and reintegration of individual human trafficking victims. Just 15 days later, 13 people from around the world had fully funded the portal's first case. 6Degree tells each survivor’s story through interactive story maps. This method protects the survivor’s identity and yet tells a compelling story.
