About Forai

Each year Forai walks alongside 8-12 refugee and immigrant women on the artisan/artisan-admin team and 20-30 women who take part in community sewing classes. Forai works to foster dignity and help these women’s stories be heard. We help empower them economically with income earned from their work. And Forai creates community, a space where women from different backgrounds and cultures are mutually giving and receiving.

Every purchase of artisan-made jewelry and textiles, provides a fair wage and ongoing empowerment, but many women arrive at our workshop while living below the poverty line with almost no English. Donations enable us to onboard new women into our empowerment program. Learn more here.

Our Circles of Unity jewelry in gold or silver is a great place to begin celebrating their strength and yours while honoring the unity of our shared humanity.
