Meninadança is bringing together people who want to use their specific skill or expertise to make a difference.
Whatever you do and how ever much time you have, you can help us change lives.
What is Skillsbank?
It is a database of people from all around the world who want to donate their time, skills and expertise to help Meninadança achieve our aims.
The chances are, something you do well - either as a job or a hobby - could benefit one of our areas of work. From artists, photographers, filmmakers, and writers to computer programmers, administrators and event organisers, your gifts and professional know-how could help us do more, raise awareness and bring hope to more girls in Brazil.
And it doesn't matter if you don't have much time - you can specify how much time you have available, even if that's just couple of days a year.
Matthew Dunn, artist
As a member of Skillsbank, Matthew Dunn, from Australia, has used his talent to help Meninadança on several occasions, including designing material for our conference, drawing a portrait of Emilly (right), a nine-year-old who was murdered in Medina, and producing a print illustrating our work on the BR-116 (below). He has been called on twice a year on average.
"I got involved with Meninadança after reading an article about the work they were doing with the Pink House. After spending a number of years focusing on commercial art I wanted to start creating work with a greater importance that could have a positive impact in some way.
Since then I've made myself available for Meninadanca whenever some art or design work is needed, and I plan on working with the team for many years to come. Their work inspires me greatly and I'm proud to be a small part of it."
