Human trafficking generates more than $32 billion dollars taking a toll of over 21 million victims each year. The proceeds go into supporting conflict and repression in different parts of the world.


Google is planning to spend $14.5 million dollars in fighting this vice. Today, the search giant donated $3 million to Polaris Project, Liberty Asia and La Strada International in support of their efforts towards anti-trafficking. Together with Google, they have formed the Global Human Trafficking Hotline Network which will collect local data and create anti-trafficking strategies for eradication and victim protection.

According to a Google blogpost, the initiative is supported by Salesforce.com and Palantir Technologies. This support will help the global hotline to scale their infrastructure internationally. The network will be able to analyze and act upon their data in real time.
