Second batch of participants of the Emerge Reintegration Centre graduated on Tuesday and all of them have received employment which is one of the main objectives of the programme.
Colombo Round Table One assisted Emerge Lanka Foundation from the inception to operationalise the Emerge Reintegration Centre the first of its kind in Sri Lanka. Objective of the centre is to provide life skills to survivors of sexual abuse in a way that they can get employed and reintegrate into society upon completion of the programme.
Yesterday marked a proud moment for Emerge, as we celebrated the bittersweet graduation of the second batch of program participants from the Emerge Centre. Than...k you to all who helped make the day possible, and came to honor their journey and accomplishments with us. We wish our 9 inspirational young women nothing but the best as they embark on their next chapter in life!
Colombo Round Table One is supporting the Reintegration Centre for Victims of Abuse conceptualized and operationalised by Emerge Lanka Foundation. Victims of abuse who are living in shelters run by the government or other charitable organizations are compelled to leave the shelters when they turn 18. The objective of this reintegration centre is to provide life skills which make the resident girls employable citizens. The first batch graduated in April 2017 and the second batch is scheduled to graduate in October 2017. Colombo Round Table One is proud to partner with Emerge Lanka Foundation to support the first of its kind reintegration centre in Sri Lanka. Below video provide how the Emerge Reintegration Centre changes lives of its residents.
