About Tjejzonen
Tjejzonen is Swedens largest support organisation for girls aged 10 to 25 years. We give girls support on their terms with the help of educated volunteers called Big Sisters. The Big Sisters support girls by meeting online or in real life, called Big Sister Online or Big Sister Live. Currently, we offer Big Sister Live to girls who are new in Sweden and reside in the Stockholm area.

Meet one of the Big Sisters
Showit Kidane is a Big Sister at Tjejzonen. She speaks Swedish, English and Tigrinya. Here she tells us why a Big Sister can be a great support:

A Big Sister is not here to lead you in to “a better life”, or try to “save you” in any way. We only talk about the things you want to talk about, and do things you want to do. We listen and support you, on your terms. I also want to say that, from personal experience, I know that things will get easier when you put your feelings into words. Whatever it may be about. And sometimes it can be easier to talk to someone outside your situation. I am here to show you that you are not alone and I think you are a hero!
