A special visitor to Hot Sun Foundation this month -  Emmanuel Jal, South Sudanese former "lost boy", hip hop rapper for peace who lived many years in Kenya, now on a mission for peace (  Jal came to Hot Sun Foundation  in Kibera, sitting outside our office in a circle of plastic chairs  under a corrugated tin roof

Youth from Kibera, sharing their stories of the post election violence in Kenya (Dec 2007 - March 2008)
- Waking up one morning and your aunt tells you the sad news of the murder of your parents, travelling on the road

- The loss of a friend, chopped down

- Another friend who lost his legs

- A young man whose girl friend was snatched away and raped

 One youth from Kibera commented,
Before we had been living in peace and did not know what it was until we lost it in the post election violence now we know. Now we must ensure that the violence never happens again

Talking, sharing, texting, filming for PEACE That is the focus of the young filmmakers at Hot Sun Foundation.
