Twelve new trainees at Kibera Film School began classes in February 2011. At Hot Sun Foundation youth from Kibera have the opportunity to learn hands-on filmmaking that will make a difference for themselves and their community. 

Hot Sun Foundation has three major programs. 
1. Kibera Film School with hands-on comprehensive film training;  check out

2. Kibera TV, with community reports every week online, reflecting the community's concerns;  visit

3. Hot Sun Film Klubs in primary and secondary schools, to encourage children to watch good films and consider filmmaking.

All of these community filmmaking activities offering hope and opportunities to East African children and youth living in urban slums depend on YOUR support! 

Hot Sun Foundation is in the final year of our foundation grant. To keep our doors open we need YOU! 
Especially wonderful would be a monthly commitment, no matter how small, that would help keep us going. 

PLEASE Mark your calendars and make a donation on 16 March 2011, Global Giving Matching Day. All contributions will receive an extra 30% matching funds.

Thanks for all you do!
