Emerge Global, a non-profit founded by MIT alumna Alia Whitney-Johnson while she was a student at MIT, is dedicated to empowering young women who have survived abuse to rediscover and celebrate their personal beauty, develop their self-sufficiency, and become leaders within their own communities. Today, 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.
