Our team

Cuwana

I am a social pedagogue, 37 years old and since the beginning of the year 2016 I have worked in the counseling center of the girls house Bielefeld e. V.
I was born in Turkey, but grew up in Germany, I can well understand how it is to stand between two cultures and how it feels. I am aware of many topics such as e.g. Love, partnership, sexuality, marriage, self-determination and assertion of girls and young women whose families come from other countries. If you are tired of the fact that only others decide for you, you can contact us. I am happy to find together with you how you can implement your own wishes and ideas for your own life.

Sevgi

I am a Dimplomputerin and systematic consultant and worked since 1999 in the girls house Bielefeld. I am very much aware of the worries and fears of the girls and young women who turn away from a forced marriage or who want to free themselves from a forced marriage. I offer personal, telephone and online counseling for girls and young women as well as their reference persons in German and in Turkish. In addition to general counseling on the subject of forced marriage, such as prevention, secret love, anonymity in flight, ambivalence of those affected, I also have experiences with the subjects LSBTTI (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, transsexuals, intersexuals) and forced girls and women who have an unsecured residency status. My task is to strengthen and support girls and young women in their quest for a free personality development. Every girl has a right to a self-determined life!

Zine

I am a graduate pedagogue, 39 years old and has been working for almost 10 years in the girls house Bielefeld. In the course of my professional career, I was very busy with migrations-experienced girls and their living conditions in Germany. Frequently the girls are circumcised in their prerogatives because of their female sex and need courage and encouragement. My many years of experience in the consultative work enable me to accompany and support the girls and young women.
