Noreen Kombo, film trainee Hot Sun Foundation
My name is Noreen Kombo
What compelled me to come to Kibera Film School?
Something very sad. I was pregnant, but lost the baby. The loss made me think about what do I really want in my life. I saw Kibera Film School on twitter and decided to try it out.
Hot Sun Foundation attracts interesting people. People are knowledgeable. We exchange ideas. It's a healthy learning environment where everybody knows something
For me, it's better to learn in a small group than a class of 100 people. I'm impressed with what I've learned so far.
Through the filmmaking training, I'm looking at storytelling in a different way. Now I'm starting to think I want to be a very good film editor. I love polishing something rough to make it better.
Why should people invest in Hot Sun Foundation?
If they invest and empower one person, then that one youth can empower a whole community. Me personally once I am done with the filmmaking training, I will start coming back for volunteer work. People give to us and we give back - starting a giving cycle.
Wednesday 17 October is Bonus Day. Global Giving will match your contribution by 30%.
Join the Giving Cycle.
