Peter grew up in a slum, witnessing violence, rape, early pregnancy, drug abuse among his friends and desperately wanted to change this. Being a good dancer, he started by inviting some of his friends to join him in dancing and the number has been increasing up until today. This helps kids to work through their struggles and build confidence. With it, Peter also promotes life skills, thus reducing the rate of drug abuse, crime and teenage pregnancy among the girls in the community.
