Give Hope to Refugee Women

We met Sui just three years ago. Walking into a community sewing class at the Forai workshop, Sui was timid and shy.

After three years in the Forai workshop, Sui has improved her English, made valuable friendships, and sharpened computer and administrative skills––all while making a valuable home-based income for her children. She now has the job skills and confidence to begin a new small business with her husband.
“I have learned a lot. I am more confident.”

The truth is, Sui is one of many stories we could share with you. As we watch the news from places like Afghanistan and Ukraine, we know more vulnerable refugee women will be arriving in St. Louis in the coming year. We want to offer them a friendly smile, a helping hand, and opportunities to thrive.

Your generosity will propel the mission of Forai forward into 2023.

For 13 years, Forai has focused on helping resettled refugee and immigrant women just like Sui with three things: dignity, empowerment, and community. Forai is a place of refuge for the refugee, connecting women with American friends and opportunities to generate income for their families while learning jewelry-making or sewing and other crucial job-related skills. 

A year-end donation of any amount says “yes” to welcoming more women into the Forai empowerment process.
