I was only 16 when I started Kibera Film School in 2009. At Kibera Film School, I gained the vision and the experience to become a filmmaker.
Now I am working freelance in filmmaking and journalism in Nairobi. I have also taught camera at a local institute. I have worked on documentaries with social and community relevance.
I am giving back to Kibera Film School by training other youth in camera.
You are key to our work.
Because of you, Hot Sun Foundation can change the negative perception that many people have of youth growing up in the slums.
Your support keeps Hot Sun Foundation going.
Most of the Kibera Film School graduates are working in the Kenyan media industry and doing a good job.
Thanks to you and your donations, slum youth have gained respect as filmmakers.
Your support for Hot Sun Foundation helps other youth out there that are jobless and cannot afford the fees for film school.
Your donation goes a long way to provide quality filmmaking for urban slum youth.
Please give whatever you can.
Here's where your funds will go:
USD 30 pays for one day's stipend for a professional filmmaker volunteer to train youth at the Kibera Film School
USD 60 pays student fees for one week of filmmaking training.
USD 100 pays for one month's electricity.
Thank you for all you do.
