Emerge Lanka Foundation
Emerge Lanka Foundation is a charitable organization that supports Sri Lankan girls, ages 10-18, who have been removed from their homes due to past abuse or the threat of abuse and are courageously testifying in court. These girls are placed into shelters that typically lack resources and educational opportunities; Emerge partners with these shelters to transform them into entrepreneurship hubs, where girls develop the business and life skills needed for self-sufficiency. Emerge equips these girls with skills and resources for their futures, using a comprehensive curriculum that emphasizes leadership, life skills, and business knowledge, while simultaneously generating a financial foundation for each program participant through the creation of unique jewelry.
Emerge Lanka Foundation is a charitable company limited by guarantee and registered with the Companies Office in Sri Lanka (Company Number: GA2247). Emerge Lanka works with its sister entity Emerge Global, located in the U.S., to implement its programs.
