Stand with Forai in Hope


Stand with Forai in Hope

ONLINE SILENT AUCTION + FUNDRAISER
OCTOBER 15-22, 2020 | ONLINE FINALE GATHERING, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 8-9 PM

Forai stands with refugee women to provide income, community, empowerment, and dignity. During this unprecedented time, we invite you to join a first-ever Forai online silent auction and stand with Forai. We need you - now more than ever - to partner with your refugee neighbors!

You may have seen many of your favorite outdoor events, festivals, and farmer's markets cancelled this Spring and Summer. These are the festivals where the bulk of Forai products are currently sold. 

That means that—to survive as an organization beyond COVID-19—we have temporarily and significantly scaled back and furloughed several staff. 

We will continue activities including sewing classes, English practice, seeking employment placements for skilled sewers, and refugee advocacy. We will also continue to carry out custom sewing and jewelry making, which is pre-ordered before production.  

We will wait until we can resume normal sales and re-introduce fuller efforts in income generation. We are also seeking to increase online and wholesale partnerships—but these efforts take time to build. 

As Forai continues to stand with refugee women in an unprecedented time—will you continue to stand with Forai?

Forai, Inc., is a faith-based, Christian 501(c)3 organization partnering with local refugee and immigrant women to enable the realization of economic, educational, and social goals through training and peer support, and by expanding market opportunities for artisans.
