Emerge Global is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the United States, while Emerge Lanka Foundation is an established charitable organization in Sri Lanka. The two are closely related: Emerge Global serves as the main overseeing and visioning body, laying the foundation of its work abroad and supporting fundraising and sales for all Emerge programs.
Emerge Global is the founding organization of the work that is now carried out in Sri Lanka - it is through the vision of Emerge Global that the team based in Sri Lanka is able to fight the tough but necessary battle against child sexual abuse. Emerge Lanka Foundation acts as the implementing partner of Emerge Global in Sri Lanka. Over time, Emerge Lanka Foundation has become increasingly financially independent of Emerge Global, both in terms of fundraising and sales. Our goal is that the Emerge Lanka Foundation becomes completely sustainable from Sri Lanka.
