Passion for Filmmaking: Grishon's Story

My name Grishon Onyango. I am  21 years old.  My passion is photography and filmmaking. 

I got my chance when a friend told me about Hot Sun Foundation. My mom told me to come, but I didn't know how to get here.  I tried three times and finally found it and joined Kibera Film School.

I am just feeling happy about myself.  I go from step to step.  I didn't know how to edit and now I do.  I keep learning.

I made a short video for the project "Operation Smile" that helps children with cleft palates and other problems.  I am proud that my skills can help others.  Now I have some experience. I am a filmmaker.

Hot Sun Foundation is a platform to achieve want you want to do in life.

Message to our supporters:

I just want to thank you for being kind and generous.  

I hope you will continue helping and you will be blessed.

Sincere thanks from all of us at Hot Sun Foundation!
