What we do
Make a Difference Today
The Emerge Lanka Foundation works in three strategic areas:
Intervention: Trauma sensitive programming geared towards reintegration to support survivors of sexual and gender-based violence to become strong independent women who can create change in their own communities.
Entrepreneurship: Empowerment and financial stability for girl survivors of sexual and gender-based violence to develop self-sufficient and sustainable means of income to build a stable future.
Policy Advocacy: Protection and justice for the girl child who has suffered atrocities and is most often ostracised by her community and society at large. Emerge places significant importance on mental health and emotional stability. Emerge strives to create a balance between empathy, emotional connect and objective focus to ensure the girls are ready to reintegrate into society in a positive way.
