Youth Participation in Kenya through Media

Youth media on the move in Nairobi
Youth media on the move in Nairobi

Youth are on the move, in Africa, in the Middle East. We hear it in the news, in our daily conversations, every single day. In Kenya, youth are ready to work for positive, peaceful change before the next national elections in 2012. But youth must have the tools to get involved. Their voices have not been heard.

Kenya has the tools of a new constitution and the media training of Hot Sun Foundation. Hot Sun Foundation through media training is mobilizing youth in the urban slums of Nairobi. We are the new media. We reach out to the youth in the urban slums. We are working for peaceful participation through youth telling their stories.

If change is to include the youth, if change is to be peaceful and positive, we need your support! We are training youth in media skills to have their voices heard. We need support for scholarships for media training.

We need 100 people who will contribute USD 25 per month. Just USD25 per month, will make the difference. The price of one restaurant meal per month will make a difference for youth in urban slums in Nairobi.

Join us TODAY! Sign up for a monthly contribution of USD25 or more and watch us take off! We are poised to make history in Kenya. You can help make it happen. Thank you.
