Dalys Perez - Agent of Change 12/05/2011

Dalys PerezDalys Perez, 17, was seeking a positive influence in her life after her mother went to prison. Living in El Chorillo, a crime-ridden neighbourhood of Panama City, it was difficult to escape from violence. Then Dalys found her way to Movimiento Nueva Generación (Movement New Generation), a community-based organisation that has changed her life.

Dalys was attracted to the centre by the dance classes and now goes every day after school. UNICEF reports on how the centre and dance are transforming the teenage girl's life.
