The Story about Hello

Hello. A little word can make a huge difference to someone who is alone.

It did for Sara Damber, the person who founded Friends in 1997. She was bullied in school herself and had no friends. But one day, a boy in her class started to say hello to her. He said hello and he saw her. That little word broke the dark, downward spiral of bullying that Sara found herself in. It also gave her the strength she needed to start Friends, which is now the largest organization working to combat bullying in Sweden.

Today, Friends trains schools, preschools and sports clubs all over the country. In our vast experience, we have found that in order to stop bullying we need to have an active, intentional and long-term approach where everyone is involved.

Together we can create change!
