Founded by Jen Owens in 2009, Forai (Friends of Refugees and Immigrants) has been a source of hope for refugee and immigrant women who face significant barriers to employment and struggle to flourish in their new homes. Our mission is to empower them with a fair wage, mentorship, and the opportunity to learn marketable skills as they create the highest quality jewelry, baby clothing, textiles, and other accessories. 100% of purchases are invested in this mission. Forai focuses on three things: dignity, empowerment, and community. Together, we are changing their present and the future for their children.
