The day of writing this update, 4 March 2013, is a special day… national elections in Kenya. 

And Hot Sun Foundation is a special educational program for youth - the only comprehensive filmmaking school and production center, located in Kibera, Nairobi, East Africa's largest slum.

Hot Sun Foundation and Kibera Film School are working for peace with community groups and through showing our videos everywhere.

We have the support of some amazing people in Nairobi and beyond.

Meet one of our supporters:

Tazim Elkington, who calls herself: The Indian Black Butterfly!  Paradigm Shifter, Trainer, Writer, Speaker and Poet  Her motto is: Truth is when what people think, say and do are in harmony!

For several years, Tazim has worked as a volunteer with the youth  at Hot Sun Foundation to inspire and challenge them regarding their commitment, initiative, identity and teamwork.  Her contribution has been invaluable.

Here's what she wrote in an email after her most recent session at Hot Sun Foundation:

Hi All, What an amazing morning!! I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for bringing me into your space and help shift mindsets.

Here's what Tazim posted on facebook:
