Music.Inc’s latest concert, A Final Wish List, is dedicated to a group of innocent and youthful women, between the ages 10-18, who have left their home and communities, or have been removed from their homes due to abuse or the threat of abuse, and are courageously testifying in court. Music.Inc has partnered with the Emerge Lanka Foundation to improve the lives of an amazing group of girls who have suffered from abuse.
Emerge is an organisation that partners with resource-poor shelters that would typically take in sexually abused girls. Emerge has identified a need to rebuild the lives of sexually victimised girls so that they are prepared to face the world on their own, to start afresh once their court cases are settled. The Foundation, which is a global movement, is guided by the belief that happy, smart, independent young women can change the course of society for the better.
Emerge equips sexually abused girls with skills and resources for their futures, using a comprehensive curriculum that emphasises leadership, life skills, and business knowledge, while simultaneously generating a financial foundation for each program participant through the creation of unique, Emerge branded-jewellery.
