Meninadança Conference 2022
7 May 2022
£10.00, £5.00 concessions. Includes refreshments, pastries and a conference pack.
Brazil's BR-116 is the worst road in the world for the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children. Find out more, and Meninadança’s work with its victims.
The BR-116 is Brazil’s longest and busiest highway and the fourth-longest road in the world. And, every ten miles, on average, children are sold for sex.
Pushed into prostitution at a young age, and often by their own families, girls living in communities along the BR-116 are being trafficked, robbed of their childhoods, left alone and abandoned in a terrifying cycle of exploitation.
Meninadança uses dance, in a safe, all-female spaces, to reach and rescue young girls living along the motorway, inspiring and empowering them to take back control of their lives.
Find out more at this day conference, with guest speakers including members of Meninadança’s team in Brazil, and two girls who have found a way out.
There will also be videos, live link-ups and Brazilian capoeira dance performances.
