Emerge Global empowers girls who have survived abuse to celebrate their personal beauty, develop their self-sufficiency, and become leaders within their own communities

Emerge Global supports Sri Lankan girls, age 10-18, who have been removed from their homes due to past abuse or the threat of abuse. The Emerge Bead Program 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.

1. Through the creation of art we help girls heal from past abuse and develop their sense of inner-beauty, self-worth, and confidence.

2. Through community and mentorship we give them a source of social support.

3. Through the sale of their one-of-a-kind jewelry and business training we help them to become economically independent.

4. Through life skills education we provide them with a chance to build a future.
