Why is it?

Why is it?

That many youth living in urban slums in East Africa continue to aspire to be filmmakers despite the fact that there are little or no opportunities for them to learn filmmaking?

We at Hot Sun Foundation have been working with talented youth in East African urban slums (also known as "informal settlements") for many years. 

We know that many many youth, female and male, aspire to be filmmakers but there were NO opportunities for them to get hands-on training to do so.

With your support, Hot Sun Foundation offers the opportunity for many urban slum youth to become filmmakers!

Listen to what  Douglas Mwangi has to say

When did you first think of becoming a filmmaker                                                            

Frankly, I can't say there is a time I ever thought of becoming a filmmaker for the first time because I have always seen the world in terms of pictures.

I have always wanted to capture every moment of it, so I feel I was born with a desire of wanting to be a filmmaker. 

How did you find out about Hot Sun Foundation's Kibera Film School?                   

Through the Internet.

What do you like best about Kibera Film School?

Their approach of imparting practical knowledge to students

What is the biggest challenge facing Hot Sun Foundation?

The limited admission spaces to Kibera Film School.

Why should people support Hot Sun Foundation?

So that they can continue developing talents of people who otherwise would never have a chance to become who they wish to be.

Happy Holidays to All!

Your support makes a difference for many young people in urban slums in East Africa.

We appreciate it.
